Bloemfontein Celtic has officially confirmed the signing of a multi-million sponsorship deal with MTN as their main sponsors, replacing Vodacom. 

The new sponsorship was announced officially today during the unveiling of new Siwelele new kit for this season.   Speaking to KickOff.com, Phunya Sele Sele CEO Ikie Augousti confirmed their three-year sponsorship with MTN but refused to divulge figures.   "This remains confidential information between us and the sponsors, the whole Siwelele family is excited about the sponsorship and we are looking forward to a fruitful and successful relationship with MTN for the next three years," he said.

While I dont support Celtics; this scant and dismissal attempt at reporting highlights the bias our media outlets. If it were teams from Gauteng the story would have comprehensive, with interviews from at least 4 stake-holders.

Please show respect to all teams even if they are "small teams" in your eye. Some of us respect the beautiful game enough to know that every team has a role to contribute to the development of our football.

I fully agree with you there, this media is very biased!

Having said that, i would like to congratulate Phunya Selesele on their new kit and sponsorship, hope it help you grow from strength to strength.

For me, Celtics should be better than Supersport in terms of achievements if you take into account their support base.

You are now no longer "Masokolara" Selesele!

Congradulationsare in order to siwelele for the deal. But there is nothing ayoba about the kit; the less said about it the better. Does this now mean that MTN Celtics will not be allowed to use Vodacom Park? Marketing guys tell us.

Well done to Siwelele, Vodacom never really considered them, they might have injected money but never really gave them same treatment as Cabbage FC and Pirates. Maybe MTN will really use the masses of Siwelele fans to promote both thier business and the soccer in Malomfontein...

Edwin: 2010-10-12 09:29 [ Report ]-it is nice one compared to Arrows jersey and Santos.

Arrows are sponsored by Mile and Santos by Canterbury, Reebook has been in the industyry for some time now, they can do better believe me. And as for the Santos Kit, i like the design,if only it wasnt for Yello and Red...

Good luck to Siwelele

Congratulation to Celtic for the MTN sponsorship. My only concern is for people who out of envy keeping on giving Chiefs stupid names. It is suprising that people call Chiefs Cabbage and still call Pirates as Pirates that shows some lack of maturity on their part. Some are also congratulating Celtic for winning the Macufe Cup in a game that Chiefs could have won easily had it not been for numerours opportunities they missed in that game. It is very ironic that the same people were going to say the opposite had Chiefs won the Macufe Cup. There were going to say it is not important but if it is their teams or Celtic winning, it is important. It is very hypocritic and it shows that people don't realise how low they have sunk with their thinking.
