A South African football team made up of 35 grandmothers may have the possibility of playing in a “curtain raiser” for the 2010 World Cup this summer. The team gets together twice a week to play in a local league made up of 8 teams. The grandmothers range in age from 40’s to 80’s and they credit their improved health to the football matches.
I think its great to read about the impact the sport can have outside of what we normally see on television. Too many times professional footballers take the spotlight away from what the sport can be.
