Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs and Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune revealed his Khune Legacy Tournament is designed to keep children off the streets.

The tournament is taking place in his hometown of Ventersdorp and started on 23 December. The competition will run until New Year's Eve and is expected to feature local talent from that area.

The 29-year-old is a big exponent of giving back to his community and will be involved in helping run his self-titled tournament during part of the holiday break for Premiership teams.

 The Glamour Boys ended the first-half of the 2016/17 campaign on a high with two victories, which moved the Steve Komphela-coached outfit to within just one point of co-leaders SuperSport United, Bidvest Wits and Cape Town City.

Nonetheless, the goalkeeper has explained the reason behind hosting the event.

"Good to see the kids out of the street. That's the whole purpose of the Khune Legacy Tournament," he said on his official Twitter account.
