KFC joins the exciting inaugural Mzansi Super League (MSL) as proud sponsors of the tournament’s ball boys and girls taking place from the 16th of November to the 16th of December 2018.
Through this partnership, KFC reinforces its commitment to providing platforms which bring KFC Mini-Cricket kids closer to their cricketing heroes through its KFC Mini-Cricket programme and by introducing young boys and girls to the game, now on a global stage.
Thabisa Mkhwanazi, KFC Public Affairs Director says, “We are excited to be part of the Mzansi Super League as the KFC Mini-Cricket kids will get the opportunity to step up to the crease and represent the programme in South Africa and beyond. Through this, we hope the kids will continue to enjoy getting active and learn key cricketing and life skills from their local and international heroes who will be battling it out on the field.”
Cricket South Africa CEO, Thabang Moroe adds, “We are thrilled to have KFC on board to join our roster of sponsors, all whom have committed to helping us take Mzansi T20 to the world through the game of cricket.”
Recently, KFC ran a national competition where 3 winning schools received an opportunity to join their cricketing heroes on their official KFC T20 International Series against Zimbabwe. During this once-in-a-lifetime experience, the KFC Mini-Cricket Kids had the opportunity to rub shoulders with their Protea Heroes.
KFC Mini-Cricket remains one of the best sports development programmes in world and continues to be an empowering opportunity for the children through their engagement and meeting with their Proteas’ heroes. The programme continues to allow young boys and girls to engage in teamwork as well as understand the importance of discipline, team work, tolerance and fair play.
Mkhwanazi concludes, “We encourage our KFC Mini-Cricket kids to use this experience to make new friends and hope that they create memories that last long after this experience”.
