Spur Masidlale League underway

  • Written by 

The Spur Masidlale League kicked off recently in Johannesburg with the support of Bidvest Wits; players Xola Mlambo, Siboniso Gaxa, Thabang Monare, Sifiso Hlanti, Ben Motshwari and Phumlani Ntshangase who came to show their support for the boys and girls starting this exciting seven-week journey.

The launch for the region took place at The Bram Fischerville Multipurpose Sports Centre, and the youngsters were eager to see what the day’s programme of soccer and life-skills training had in store for them.

Since the launch of the Spur Soccer Masidlale program in 2005, the program has touched the lives of over 30 000 boys and girls within these communities across South Africa.

The program started off with annual soccer clinics and became a 7-week program whereby boys and girls aged 10-12 years enjoy weekly league games ending in regional finals.

The winning teams get to enjoy a tasty Spur meal and then become player mascots at a PSL soccer game.
Khakhi Diala, Spur Group Marketing, “The children within our communities are our future, Spur Steak Ranches has been powering the soccer development of our boys and girls since 2005 and empowering the young boys and girls to make safe life decisions through the life skills initiative associated with the Spur Soccer Masidlale program.”

A life skills mentorship initiative is also attached to the program in order to empower our Spur Masidlale kids to be able to make the best life choices.

The life skills mentorship program consists of various storytelling and feedback sessions focusing on the fundamental aspects that ultimately empower the learners.
After conducting interview and examination sessions with the kids, a full high school bursary is offered through our association with Sikelela Xabisa organisation.

Spur Steak Ranches not only provides lunch for the players during the programme but the sponsorship also extends to providing Spur branded soccer kit, equipment and trained soccer coaches, all with the goal of creating the best learning environment. There are 200 boys and girls per region that take part in the Spur Soccer Masidlale programme.
