Telkom Knockout final fever hits PE

Excitement for the 2018/19 Telkom Knockout final is rising as giant killers Baroka FC hope to make history against Orlando Pirates at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth.

A cool R1 million in cash for supporters, a football legacy initiative and a carnival of festivities are also on the cards for supporters of the beautiful game.

Telkom have announced a series of activities ahead of the final. These include the Z’khipha more festival that will be held at the Young Romans Sports Grounds, Salamntu Street in Zwide on 5 and 6 December from 10am till 5pm. Members of the public will enjoy a family-friendly environment with some of Mzansi’s football legends, food stalls, kids’ corner with face painting and jumping castles as well as entertainment from local DJs.

“Perhaps one of the most important activities on the day is the TKO Ball Swop,” said Head of Sponsorship at Telkom Braam Wessels.

“It is a TKO legacy initiative that allows fans, particularly young soccer players, to bring in their old soccer balls, regardless of their condition, and swop them for a brand new soccer ball from Telkom. We intend to swop about 1000 soccer balls per day as part of our commitment to ensuring football is used as a vessel to take children off the streets and also harness their talent to become great footballers one day. With our legends present on the day to assist with the ball swop, aspirant young footballers can only be inspired to chase their dreams.”

In addition to the festival, there will be activations at KwaNobuhle Mall, Uitenhage and Ziyabuya Mall Kwa Dwesi on Friday, 7 December from 10am till 5pm.

Fans have an opportunity to meet some of South Africa’s legends of football like Jerry Sikhosana, Phumudzo Manenzhe, Aaron Mokoena, Matthew Booth and Siphiwe Mkhonza, and win spot prizes that include match day tickets, cash vouchers and other giveaways.

In being part of the true spirit of the game, fans can predict the final score by dialing *123# from any new or existing Telkom prepaid SIM card and, if their prediction is correct, they will get their Mo’nice purchase multiplied by the final score line. Football fans still have an opportunity to walk away with a staggering grand prize of R1 million as well as instant R3 000 cash giveaways and recharge givebacks also via *123#.

While the final match on Saturday, 8 December is expected to be an intense emotional roller-coaster with end-to-end action on the day, Telkom’s Z’khipha more brand ambassador and one of South Africa’s hottest musicians, Kwesta, will calm things with a live performance with his band before the start of the match and at halftime.

Tickets are currently on sale, R60 for adults and a limited number of children’s tickets are available at R15. They are available at TicketPro outlets including Spar, selected Edgars, CNA, Jet Stores and Postnet countrywide.
