KFC Football Beat back with a bang
For the second consecutive year KFC will be hosting the KFC Football Beat competition, which is promoting getting active and galvanising the Windhoek community for a day of football fun.
Starting this week, from the 5th to the 29th November 2015, kids who purchase any item from a participating KFC store will have the opportunity to enter the competition by taking part in a penalty shoot-out challenge. The top scorers gaining entry will gain entry into the tournament which will be hosted on 12 December at the Sam Nujoma Stadium.
Thabo Ntseoane, Brand Manager for KFC Namibia said KFC takes pride in providing the youth with platforms like this them to get active, make new friends and to live out their passion for the game of football. “KFC Football Beat will be a fun day out for the whole community, and thus we encourage Windhoek to get involved and to get down to their nearest participating KFC and encourage kids to enter,” encouraged Thabo.
KFC Football Beat is open to all kids between the ages of 10 and 14, who purchase any item from the KFC menu at KFC Katutura, Tal Street or Maerua Mall outlets on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. The top scorers in the penalty shoot-out challenge will move on to make up the 16 teams participating in the KFC Football Beat 2015.
The lucky winners will not only be given the opportunity to compete against their peers in a fun filled day of football, but they will also be rewarded with the opportunity to sharpen their skills at a training day, hosted on 5 December 2015 by some of Namibia’s foremost footballing personalities.
Teams will then progress to game day, where they will be provided with top of the range professional, Umbro football kits and winning teams will receive mini trophies, while each player will become the proud recipient of a KFC Football Beat medal.
He said kids outside Windhoek can also get involved in KFC Football Beat by voting at their nearest KFC for the competition to be held in their town next year and the town with the highest number of votes outside Windhoek will stand a chance to host part of KFC Football Beat 2016.
