The Chicago Africa Unity Cup was birthed out of the ideas of three African friends residing in Chicago (Alinco, Traize & Royal Black Jesus). This is a concept derived from previous soccer tournaments partly organized and implemented by Alinco, host of The Progressive Minds Show, in 2017 & 2018. Shortly afterwards, it was called Chicago Africa Cup of Nations. It was intended for the African community in Chicago to add their voice and to campaign against crime and gun victims in the City of Chicago. This was an idea introduced by Alinco. Having organized that successfully, we decided to come together and the success of these tournaments have been nothing short of amazing.
