Rohan Bloom Interfaith Football Cup

22 August 2022

The Rohan Bloom Interfaith tournament is held in memory of Rohan Bloom who was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer in 2013. It is a day of celebration and camaraderie, across three different religions. Bishops had three soccer teams taking part in the Rohan Bloom Interfaith Football Cup on Sunday 21 August, including an U13 team from the Prep. The day runs on an accumulative points basis and this year, for the first time ever, Herzlia were not the winners. It all came down to goal difference and in the end, Bishops lifted the trophy (a cast of Rohan Bloom's soccer boot) with a 6 - 0 victory over JEQ. Well done to these boys for their excellent efforts and positive spirit on the day! Bishops also had six boys who have been selected for the Rohan Bloom Interfaith team who will play Cape Town City's U18s in a couple of weeks: Ben Isserow, Thomas Barton, Tyrique Nair, Onwa Roji, Ioannis Kontopirakis and Junsu Park
