Ropapa Mensah and Lebo Moloto to Hold Youth Soccer Tournaments in Their Hometowns for the Second Year
NASHVILLE - For the second year, Nashville SC players Ropapa Mensah and Lebo Moloto will be giving back to their communities by supporting youth soccer tournaments in their hometowns during the 2019 offseason. Mensah will be organizing and hosting the Oguaa Cup in Cape Coast, Ghana while Moloto will be returning to Polokwane, South Africa for the Chebeng Community Cup.
The goal of these tournaments is to use soccer to bring hope and unity to their communities, and to encourage youth to pursue their dreams through soccer and education. Both Mensah and Moloto are raising money for the tournaments to help provide equipment such as kits, cleats and balls to participants and to cover costs for the event operations.

Moloto will be auctioning off a match-worn Nashville SC jersey as part of his fundraiser. Tickets are $10 each, and those wanting to enter the raffle can make a donation to the GoFundMe page with "Raffle" listed in the comment section. A winner will be chosen on Tuesday, Oct. 22 at 8 p.m.
