Sponsorship boom for SA soccer

first_img28 February 2008The launch of the Nedbank Cup knockout competition on Monday marks the continuation of a trend – accelerated by the country’s upcoming hosting of the 2010 Fifa World Cup – in which money from big business has been flowing into football in South Africa.With a total prize purse of R19.3-million, including R6-million for the winners, R2.5-million for the runners-up and R1-million for the losing semi-finalists, the Nedbank Cup has set a new benchmark for knockout competitions, much as the Premier Soccer League (PSL) is setting the standard for soccer sponsorships on the continent.Five years, R400-millionNedbank’s deal overall is far bigger than the prize money on offer in the Nedbank Cup; it totals R400-million over five years.PSL CEO Kjetil Siem praised Nedbank’s support of local soccer this week, saying the knockout competition was “one of the most important events on our calendar, and with their support they are certainly raising the profile of this tournament.”As newcomers to the football industry, Nedbank should be further congratulated, Siem said. “They’ve taken giant leaps to make sure that their contribution will aid the development and further enhance the beautiful game in this country.“We are confident that the Nedbank Cup will become not only the number one tournament in the country, but the number one tournament on the continent.”R500-million, R1.6-billion moreIn August 2007, South African Breweries (SAB) and Absa announced a joint sponsorship of more than R500-million over the next five years for South African football. SAB is firmly behind Bafana Bafana, while Absa sponsors the PSL’s Premier Division.A lot of money from the sponsorships is also being channelled into the development of soccer in South Africa.On top of the sizeable sponsorships by Nedbank, SAB, and Absa, the PSL pulled off an astounding coup when it signed a R1.6-billion broadcast deal with SuperSport International in June 2007.The PSL, thanks to these sponsorships, is now placed seventh on the list of leagues with the biggest sponsorship revenue in the world. That’s some achievement – and perhaps surprising when one considers that Bafana Bafana is currently ranked a lowly 70th in the Fifa world rankings.Challenge to PSL teamsFor South African soccer lovers, the hope is that the big money in the game will help lift the standard of both the PSL and the national team.PSL CEO Kjetil Siem has recognised the gap between the money in the game and the performances of the clubs, and has urged the clubs to raise their standards.“Once again,” he said, “the ball is in the court of the respective clubs to display a higher level of professionalism befitting the rise in commercial partners for the PSL.“If the standards of professionalism improve, the standard of play on the field will improve, and with that comes financial rewards from our partners.”Bad patchThe amazing amounts of money pouring into South African soccer has made the PSL a financially sound and solid business. However, before Trevor Phillips took over as CEO for the second time in 2002, the league went through a bad patch.Joe Ndlela, who succeeded Phillips after his first spell in charge, was fired for questionable financial dealings. His successor, Robin Peterson, was at the helm when 43 people lost their lives at a match between Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs, so he didn’t last long in the job.In fact, after Peterson resigned, the PSL functioned without a CEO for almost a year.Those days seem as if they are in the distant past – although they happened not long ago – thanks to the support of big business, and the boost that the 2010 Fifa World Cup has given local soccer.Nedbank CupThe Nedbank Cup is not a new competition; the financial institution has taken over the knockout cup from Absa, which has turned its attention to league football.The Nedbank Cup features 32 teams, made up of the 16 PSL clubs, eight clubs from the first division, and eight clubs from the amateur ranks. It thus captures the spirit of England’s world-renowned FA Cup, in which the minnows get to take on the giants and every year produces astonishing upsets.Besides the significant money the winners will take home, there is further incentive for winning the competition, with a place in the CAF Confederation Cup on the line.The Confederation Cup was previously known as the African Cup Winners Cup, and only once has a South African club won it. Kaizer Chiefs did the trick in 2001 when they beat InterClube of Angola 2-1 on aggregate in the final.

African products sold online to fight malaria

first_imgBuying a pair of shweshwe pyjama pants – they come in five Afro-inspired colours – will help to keep families in Mozambique safe from malaria. The idea is that making a difference is as easy as sleeping, says Goodbye Malaria. Cash raised is used for spraying homes to kill Anopheles mosquitoes. A total of 41 000 houses were already sprayed thanks to the Goodbye Malaria’s fundraising which entails selling of beadwork and shweshwe pants online. (Image: YouTube) Melissa JavanShweshwe lounge pants, mashozi bears and bracelets are sold online by Goodbye Malaria to protect homes in malaria areas in Africa.Goodbye Malaria was started by African entrepreneurs – among them the founder of global restaurant franchise Nando’s – who believe that African creativity can solve one of the continent’s biggest problems. “The initiative helps to raises funds that go directly to support on-the-ground malaria elimination programmes in Mozambique, spraying houses to protect families from contracting malaria,” the initiative explains.“It also seeks to inspire people to join our fight against malaria by educating them that elimination is ultimately possible.”According to the initiative, malaria caused 584 000 deaths worldwide in 2013; it also says 90% of deaths from the disease are in Africa. Women may be at a greater risk of contracting it, especially when they are pregnant.Malaria is transmitted by female Anopheles mosquitoes that have been infected through a previous blood meal taken from an infected person. When a mosquito bites an infected person, it takes in a small amount of blood that contains microscopic malaria parasites. The mosquito becomes infected, and passes on the disease to other people it bites. Anopheles mosquitoes are known as “night-biting” mosquitoes because they most commonly bite between dusk and dawn.Malaria symptoms typically include fever, fatigue, vomiting and headaches. In severe cases it can cause yellow skin, seizures, coma and death. The Anopheles mosquito usually feeds during the night, which is why the initiative encourages people to make a difference in their sleep. (Image: Screen grab via Goodbye Malaria)Spraying to save livesSherwin Charles, the Goodbye Malaria chief executive, says the campaign was launched in October 2013 in Mozambique.Speaking about indoor residual spray (IRS), the method used to control the mosquitoes, Francois Maartens, a malaria control field co-ordinator who works with Goodbye Malaria, says the first trial was done in September and December 2013. A total of 41 000 houses were sprayed. “We spray every six months. Our recent IRS of that area was between October 2014 and March 2015. With 41 000 houses sprayed, 117 000 people were saved.”Maartens has 16 years of experience in applied malaria research and malaria vector control, including IRS training, entomological field data collection, parasite prevalence surveys and the implementation and co-ordination of integrated malaria control operations in several African countries.Spray operators are recruited from the community because they need to enter people’s houses, says a representative of Goodbye Malaria on YouTube. “We find that if we recruit people from the area, at least they are known to the house owners.”They spray six days a week, between 6am and 2pm, due to the heat in the afternoon. “The application method and technique is very important, so the spray operators are trained over a 10-day period.” Francois Maartens says they spray every six months. “Our recent IRS of that area was between October 2014 and March 2015.” (Image: Supplied)Maartens explains that a coating is sprayed on the inner walls of the house. “Generally, the Anopheles mosquito would sit on a wall first, before it goes to a human being. If the Anopheles sits on the wall, the coating kills it.”Night feedersThe Anopheles usually comes into a house to feed during the night. “Because it is associated with the evening, we think the pants are a good product,” says Maartens. “We want to tell people that making a difference is as easy as sleeping.”Robert Brozin, the founder of Goodbye Malaria and of Nandos, says the shwe shwe pants come in five Afro-centric colours and sell for R350 each. “They’re the perfect gift and can be purchased online,” he says.The Mozambican government is a partner in the project. Mozambique is on the President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI), an American government programme. The primary goal in Mozambique of the PMI is to help the government, in collaboration with other partners, to reduce malaria mortality by 50%. This is done by rapidly scaling-up coverage of vulnerable groups with four highly effective interventions: artemisinin-based combination therapy, intermittent preventive treatment of pregnant women, insecticide-treated bed nets, and IRS. Sherwin Charles [right] encourages businesses to invest in social causes like Goodbye Malaria. Here he is with Mo-T from MiCasa. (Image: Supplied)For Charles, Goodbye Malaria is evidence that the private sector and the government can work together. He says it is a fun, creative way to showcase African products. “It is a world-class product. We thought it would be great if we could have a cool item like this where you would feel good wearing it.”He encourages African businesses to support the programme. “If you want to make a difference, invest in a social cause like this.” He also warns people who will visit malaria areas to be prepared. “There is medication on the market [to fight malaria]. Also, you don’t have to live with malaria once you are affected. It’s totally curable.”South African singer Yvonne Chaka Chaka is an ambassador of Goodbye Malaria; others are the band, MiCasa, and the humanitarian adventurer, Kingsley Holgate.Watch Kingsley Holgate talk about being an Goodbye Malaria Brand Ambassador:Watch how the ten day training is done (and MiCasa being part of it):Watch how the mosquito infects the human:last_img read more

first_img23 September 2015 The new minister of Mineral Resources, Mosebenzi Joseph Zwane, will be sworn into office today at the Union Buildings.This comes after President Jacob Zuma announced a minor cabinet reshuffle on Tuesday evening.Ngoako Ramatlhodi will take the role of Public Service and Administration minister which became available after Minister Collins Chabane died in a motor accident in March.Zwane is a Member of Parliament who has previously served as MEC in the portfolios of Agriculture and Rural Development as well as Economic Development, Tourism and Environmental Affairs in the Free State provincial government.It means that Arts and Culture Minister Nathi Mthethwa, who had been the acting Minister for Public Service, will now step down as Ramatlhodi takes up the position.President Zuma thanked Mthethwa for temporarily filling the post and wished both Zwane and Ramathlodi well in their new portfolios.Mining in South AfricaAs minister of mineral resources, Zwane’s role will be central to keeping stability in an industry that increases South Africa’s global competiveness.

That part has been difficult and much more difficult to deal with than the pain.”Before breaking his ankle just five minutes into the game against the Cleveland Cavaliers, Hayward was a sough-after free agent, who opted to sign with the Celtics to a four-year $128 million contract.Despite still not having an official timetable for his return, Hayward is adamant that he will return a much better player.“I work out every day to try to increase my range of motion and increase my strength in my legs so that I can be back as fast as I can,” he said in the same interview. “Whether that’s this year or this summer or next year, I will just let that happen. But for sure, as a competitor, I’m just trying to come back faster than anyone has ever done it.” Khristian Ibarrola /raRELATED STORY:ADVERTISEMENT Kammuri turning to super typhoon less likely but possible — Pagasa USOC CEO apologizes, says he was unaware of Nassar abuse Cayetano: 4 social media groups behind SEA Games ‘sabotage’ MOST READ View comments Asian shares slide on weak Japan data; US markets closed Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
