Former PSL legends get a boost from Hollywoodbets with their worthy soccer initiative



Every Sunday the Mehlareng Stadium in Tembisa comes alive with activity as soccer fans gather to watch some of their favourite players from yesteryear play the beautiful game. These local legends have been entertaining crowds and inspiring future players for the past 10 years, and aim to continue doing so for many years to come. Now, thanks to the assistance of big name brand Hollywoodbets, their immediate future is looking much brighter.

The Hollywoodbets Tembisa Masters League will focus on empowering the community with soccer and is made up of 14 different teams. Former PSL legends like Jerry Sikhosana, Clement Mazibuko, Pollen Ndlanya, Humphrey Mlwane, Jabu Mahlangu, Cavaan Sibeko and Katlego Loke regularly show off their talents on the field.

“At Hollywoodbets we are always looking at ways we can help to uplift the communities that we operate in. We therefore sponsor over 70 underprivileged soccer teams nationwide and have seen how these teams positively impact the communities they are part of. Once we learned about the good work Jerry and the other legends were doing we couldn’t resist getting involved! These guys are giving up their time in order to inspire the younger generation and we want to work with them
to keep up the good work,” said Wayde Dorkin, Hollywoodbets Soccer Brand Manager.

In addition to helping with the running costs of the league, Hollywoodbets has also pledged to assist with kit sponsorship as well as prizes and balls. According to Sikhosana this will be a great help to the league. “This league is really ploughing back to the community. Every Sunday we see so many people at the grounds who have come to watch us play free of charge. This sponsorship will really help to ease the financial burden on the players because most of the guys playing in the league are unemployed" said Sikhosana.
