KFC delivers football action
The KFC Football Beat 5-a-side tournament was recently held at the Sam Nujoma Stadium and saw many young budding soccer players participate in the second edition of the tournament. This year, 96 future Brave Warriors footballers battled it out, in the hopes of lifting the KFC trophy.
Thabo Ntseoane, KFC’s Brand Manager for Namibia said that KFC takes great pride in being able to give the kids of Windhoek the once in a lifetime experience of not only playing competitive football against their peers but doing so at a professional football stadium.
“We are proud to be able to provide the youth with platforms to get active and make new friends,” he said. He concluded by thanking each and every person who participated in the event and who came down to Sam Nujoma Stadium in support of the kids.
Family Feast were crowned the winners of category two and Tower United were crowned the winners of category one of the KFC Beat 5-a-side football tournament. The day’s participants were not only given the chance to take on their peers on the pitch but KFC also rewarded them with top of the range professional level Umbro football kits.
After the success of the first two events, KFC will be expanding KFC Football Beat in 2016, giving kids outside Windhoek the chance to get involved. They have invited kids to get down to their nearest store and vote for the tournament to be held in their city or town next year and the city or town with the highest number of votes outside Windhoek will stand a chance to host part of KFC Football Beat 2016.
