Original title reads, "Two teams playing soccer at Kashama commune stadium. Shirts with stars are St. Thérèse, others Olympic. The biggest soccer stadium is that of the Catholic Archdiocese. Teams are pickup players trying out for the Luluabourg team which will play against other provinces. This is the national sport here." [Elisofon field notes, March 1970-July 1970]
"As in most countries, sports are popular in zaire and closely followed by a large segment of the population. Soccer, or football, is considered the national sport with numerous professional and amateur groups competing at the national and regional level." [F. Scott Bobb, 1999: Historical Dictionary of Democratic Republic of Congo, The Scarecrow Press, Inc.]. During his trip to Congo (now Democratic Republic of Congo), Elisofon visited Kananga, capital of Kasai Occidental Province. This photograph was taken when Eliot Elisofon traveled to Africa from March 17, 1970 to July 17, 1970.
