Treat for soccer fanatics

2015-06-10 06:02

THIS year’s Carling Black Label championship featuring the two giants Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates is scheduled for 25 July at the FNB Stadium, Johannesburg.

This is the fifth edition of the tournament which the two arch-rivals Chiefs and Pirates utilise to sharpen their charges ahead of the commencement of the Premier Soccer League.

The one-day competition is popular with soccer fans for two reasons.

Firstly, it affords supporters a chance to select from both clubs the players they want to feature on the day. This is done via a voting process.

Secondly, the tournament gives two fans (one of each team), a chance to be the champion coach. By virtue of being the champion coach, the two supporters have the privilege to coach the two South African soccer giants.

In order to enter and be the champion coach, fans over the age of 18 must purchase a specially-marked bottle of Carling Black Label and look out for the unique under­liner which will allow them to vote.

By dialling *120*660*underline code# on their cell phones (at a cost of 20 cents per 20 seconds) or visiting, they can easily select their starting line-up and lead their team to victory.

Supporters who cast their votes can win great prizes. These include a share of R3 million’s worth of airtime, match tickets to the event on 25 July and, best of all the rewards, a coach’s experience with either Orlando Pirates or Kaizer Chiefs at the fifth edition of the tournament
