Kaizer Chiefs, San Miguel give back


Kaizer Chiefs and San Miguel are for the second year running involved in a soccer community project in Addo Valley, just outside Port Elizabeth. The weeklong program also involves a tournament and a CSI activation at two High Schools.

The aim of the project is for the club to impart some knowledge and skills to the people of the area through soccer clinics. “We’ve joined forces with San Miguel for this year’s edition. It’s an excellent way of giving back and reaching out to our supporters in Addo Valley,” said Chiefs’ Marketing Director, Jessica Motaung about the soccer community project. “They get to be trained and coached by us and, on top of that, meet one of our legends, Arthur Zwane.”

A weeklong program conducted by the Kaizer Chiefs Youth Development Academy team of coaches made up of, Sundra Govinder, Arthur Zwane, and Jamie Schultz. The first session went exceptionally well, and the guys really worked hard. With headquarters in Argentina, San Miguel is a leader in the production, distribution, and sale of fresh fruit and food products derived from citrus in the South Hemisphere. San Miguel South Africa has been running a soccer community project for its employees, ahead of the annual picking season, in the last few years.

Eight teams will participate, seven of them are from companies that work with San Miguel in Addo Valley – four sides will follow a training program in the morning, while the other four teams will have their sessions in the late afternoon.
