BETHLEHEM. – The South African Football Association (Safa) Dihlabeng Local Football Association (DLFA) has secured a two-year sponsorship from Fanas Outfitters from Bethlehem.

Apparently the sponsor will be responsible for the u.13 boy’s unit league which started this month and is expected to end late in July or early August. The league would be played in all the units of the Dihlabeng Local Municipality, namely Bethlehem, Clarens, Fouriesburg, Paul Roux and Rosendal.

At the end of the season, winners of the units will play against each other to produce the overall champions.

According to Mpati Maseru, the chairperson of the association, Fanas would supply them with sets of five branded jerseys for play-offs, a trophy for the winners, 22 gold medals for the winners and 22 silver medals for the runners-up.

He added that during the play-offs Fanas would have marketing rights in ­collaboration with the Dihlabeng LFA.

“We are happy to see that some business people are still willing to contribute to the development of football.

“We know that Fanas is one of the big shops in town that sells sports equipment and school uniforms. By so doing they are ploughing back into the community that supports them,” he said.

Maseru said they had decided to play the league in units because they had experienced challenges regarding travelling.
