 Kings of UWC


The Kings of “UDubs” is an annual event organised by a group of passionate alumni who use soccer as a vehicle to maintain connection with the University. While this group has only recently established a Kings of UWC alumni interest group it has, in the past, organised soccer tournaments in partnership with the Alumni office.

The annual event provides Alumni with an opportunity to stay connected to the University, and to give back by raising money for the upgrade of the UWC Sports Stadium through team's registration fees.

Kings of UWC creates a platform for current students to play soccer against past students, and to network on and off the field.

How it all began

The idea for Kings of UWC emerged when two groups of students decided to challenge each other to a game of soccer. The designated venue was the spiritual home of informal football at UWC – the patch of grass at the back of the cafeteria known as “The Dell”.

The tournament grew and more teams wanted to claim the bragging right that comes with victory. Once a month, on a Wednesday, the football fundis would battle it out.

The tournament was formalized in 2009 by UWC alumni who wanted to rekindle the spirit of the day by bringing back the old legends of the Dell, to take on the new young contenders for the throne.​
