Experience will be pitted against youthful exuberance when Garden Village United locks horns with Argentina in the semifinals of the inaugural Pollen Festive Games today at Marivate Park in Daveyton at 4pm.

Youthful United boasts players from two respected development academies, Kaizer Chiefs and Harold Legodi's Africa Sports Academy.

The youth are favourites having enjoyed an unbeaten run in the tournament so far.

But Argentina can call on experienced professionals in their fold.

They include Thanda Royal Zulu midfielder Katlego Loke and former Kaizer Chiefs Thabiso "Skaapie" Malatsi, who now plays in the Vodacom League under by Walter Rautman. The final tomorrow at the same venue at 4pm will be preceded by two curtain-raisers.

The games are organised by former Chiefs and Orlando Pirates goalpoacher Pollen Ndlanya.
