Taking Matabeleland to the 2018 CONIFA World Football Cup
In 2017 I became the Head Coach of the Matabeleland Football Team. Matabeleland will play at the 2018 CONIFA World Football Cup in London (May 31 - June 10, 2018) This could be my biggest challenge and adventure to date... DONATE HERE
My name is Justin Walley. I am the current Head Coach of Matabeleland. In 2017 our team qualified for the CONIFA World Football Cup Final in London. Managing and coaching the team is the greatest honour ever bestowed upon me. It is also very probably the biggest challenge I have had to face.
