Recently, OYDC signed a two year sponsorship deal with Merifin Capital of Belgium amounting to US$ 200, 000 for the Teulings Youth Sports Challenge.
The challenge was initiated in 2011 with competition in basketball, football, tennis, hockey, and volleyball and support academy sport.

Last year OYDC hosted the 8th edition of the Teulings Youth Sports Challenge with top deserving athletes, teams, coaches, umpires, and sports administrators being awarded with trophies and medals.
The Teulings Youth Sport Challenge was established to cater for athletes aged between 10 and 18 from different parts of Zambia.
