Mhlanga Tarvern of Site B emerged as winners of the 2017 Smirnoff Raga Bolo championship provincial league held in Site B recently.

Coach Luzuko Jamda praised his troops after defeating Langa Tarvern FC on penalties after an exciting five-a-side soccer match.

Captain Mziwoxolo Mxako said he was thrilled that they won the trophy and they were now focussed in the national championships taking place in Soweto at the end of the month.

Over the past few months, 136 tavern teams have been repping their kasis in the District League of the 2017 Smirnoff Raga Bolo Championship in the hopes of taking home the title of Raga Bolo champions and the grand prize of R150,000.

Now, the top teams will be facing off in the next phase of the five-a-side street soccer tournament - the national championiships in Jozi.

Kyle Lesch, Marketing Manager for Smirnoff, says, “Everyone’s invited to come out and cheer on the tavern teams from their province – masidibaneni (let’s get together and enjoy)!”

The teams that came out tops in the Provincial League will head to Gauteng to take part in the National Final on 1 July.
