More on the Let’s Play initiative:

SuperSport over time has evolved as the quintessential sports authority.

With such strong sporting influence within the South African market, SuperSport has been perfectly poised to harness this power and rally the public and corporates to truly make a difference in society.

SuperSport identified that there were huge issues severely inhibiting the development of children through skills learned by playing, physical education and sport – all of which are imperative to the holistic development of young people.

It was from this insight that Let’s Play was born in November 2005 with the aim of elevating awareness of our social situation and to introduce and encourage play, activity and sport in schools.

For more information, please contact Lynne or Juanré at Z PR on 051-522-9574.
In 2015 SuperSport’s Let’s Play celebrates ten years of activating the children of South Africa.
