The WAPA FOOTBALL LEAGUE falls within a football environment open for all player who has an interest in football and enjoys practicing it : adults (men and women) professionals or amateurs of football who are looking for a fun, unifying, intergenerational and mixed activity during summer break. The target group is not limited to football players but to anyone who appreciates football without necessarily playing it.
Launched in 2016 at the Royal Ixelles Sporting Club, the WAPA FOOTBALL LEAGUE has doubled its number of participants from 7 teams (80 participants) to 14 teams (180 participants in 2017. In 2017 the tournament was sold out in less than two weeks, hence our wish and the necessity to spread it out to several clubs to avoid registration refusal and increase the number of participants. In 2018, we gathered 800 participants thanks to the contribution of 5 clubs. In addition we raised more than 25.000 euros to the benefit of our Sri Lankan partner. In 2019, we gathered more than 1.000 participants in 6 clubs all around Belgium. More than 30.000 € were raised to fund our programs.
