Fans set to score big in Carling Black Label Cup

Posted: 26 July 2011 Time: 12:24

An Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs fan will each win the prize of a lifetime this weekend, during the inaugural Carling Black Label Cup.

The two teams meet each other at FNB Stadium on Saturday, where fans will get to play coach, and the sponsors, South African Breweries, have committed R2-million in prize money for the match as part of the deal with the two clubs.

The two chairmen, Irvin Khoza and Kaizer Motaung, have decided they will split the prize money and will donate R1-million to a Pirates fan and R1-million to a Chiefs fan for participating and voting in the “Be the Coach” campaign.

The announcement of the two winners will be made on Saturday, live, after the match and will be personally presented by the two chairmen.

The winners will keep R500 000 to themselves while the other R500 000 will be donated by the fan to charities or charitable projects in their local communities.

This announcement is again a world first and is a gesture shown by the respective chairmen to reward loyalty shown by their fans as well as contribute to the upliftment of communities.

Eligible fans need to have participated in the “Be the Coach” campaign.

Voting for the respective team starting line-ups closes on Wednesday, July 27 at midnight so there is still time for fans to participate.

Now Cowza and Kaizer are making it clear that they replace the Charity cup with this Zamalek, why including charity if we banned the charity cup??? The answer is simple the Charity cup din't benefit any of these chairmans.

@Nipsy - I hate supporters who're like you,you don't follow soccer- if my memory serves me well......MTN will be the new sponsor for charity and just for the record " I believe you are one of those soccer fans who started supporting soccer during world cup.

STUPID COW.

People should start thinking before they open their ass mouth here.This idiot is talking kaak.This weekend the will be so many friendlies including the Pirates and Chiefs games.So any club chairman can arrange his club for any friendly.There is Mangaung Cup,Mopani Cup and Carling Cup,so why do people complain about a friendly between chiefs and pirates?Is it a taboo for Pirates and Chiefs to organised themselves for a friendly?Why did you ask the Chairman of swallows,Ajax,Celtics why they abolished Charity for Mangaung Cup?Why don't you ask Jomo,Motsepe,Khulu Sibiya for organising Mopani Cup instate of continuing with charity.I mean people are out of order.They always critiseze for no apparent reason.So to you Nipsy grow up and starty thinking for urself not what you here from others.Who told you that charity will be stoped?O se ke wa nya ka molomo.

hope it is not money down the drain, giving a person R500 000 (chances are the recipient is a an alcaholic). SAB knows the money will return where it came from. Hopefully they provide financial advisors to the winners, otherwise evrey cent will end up at Mum Ruby's tarven.

On a serious note, I am not interested in this cup (nothing againts the black bottle). Barca and Manu, Inter Milan and Juventas do not clash in preseason tournaments. This derby will loose its spark.

I have to agree with you on this one, the truth hurts.

I knew this ws cumin,only fools dnt c why the TCC ws canceled,Chimps n Bucs cn give to charity on their own nt that biased voting frm TCC.If otha teams wanted 2 giv 2 charity,y dnt they just do so witout thiz two?This clearly shows that the 2 giants were being used as a bait 4 othas.Its mo of a charity cup btwn 2 crowd pullers n clear message dat they cn do it on their own coz the chimps n Pirates brands wer being used 4 sum fat cats @ Telkom.

the charity cup was scrapped to allow Bafana Bafana more time. Now where is that time? Is Chiefs and Pirates bafana Bafana? what are you really playing now that you have donated your prize money? You must have raked in millions for the two of you. carry on with you POWER. It will bring you down very soon. Good you are not SAFA President.
