The charity football tournament was held in conjunction with his Kelvin Shaban Foundation. The four teams face off in a bid to win an array of prizes that included cash prize.

The first and second runner-ups were also awarded Kes 15,000 and Kes 10,000 respectively and also, with football jerseys.
Shaban also used the opportunity to reach out to the homeless and the disadvantaged street kids from almost all the Children Homes around Roysambu constituency.
The street kids, who numbered over 600, were all gathered from eight of the most renown children homes in Roysambu, with each benefiting hugely as they were all gifted brand new shoes, clothes, school items, toys, books and bags of food.
