Hollywoodbets Sponsorship Programme
Hollywoodbets has always proudly been involved in supporting our local communities.
The Hollywoodbets Soccer Sponsorship Programme has also continued to make a difference by sponsoring full soccer kit to 71 community soccer teams this year. Another significant milestone is the fact that we joined forces with Jerry Sikhosana who became our official Brand Ambassador. He remains an inspiration, someone who invests time in others to help them succeed. He is particularly passionate about investing in the country’s youth and continues to give back to his local community, and to the sport of soccer. He does this by supporting his local legends’ and youth league soccer initiatives. Hollywoodbets proudly backs him in his good work, and have therefore come on board as the main sponsor of the Tembisa Masters League. In keeping with our values we are also investing in other sports, and are currently the main sponsors of Umlazi Cricket Club and the Crusaders Cricket Club.
In addition to that we also support Clares Cricket Club and Parkhill Bowling Club.
Between Hollywoodbets and Winning Form we sponsor 17 trainers, 4 jockeys and one workrider. In terms of the sponsored jockeys, Muzi Yeni continues to fly the Winning Form flag really high, while our solitary workrider, Francis Semela, also recently finished runner-up in the Workrider Series held in Gauteng.
We opened 21 new branches across the country in 2015! This has also allowed us the opportunity to support even more worthy charitable organisations and sports teams.
We took another fantastic opportunity to introduce more people to our brand this year when Hollywoodbets signed on as one of the sponsors for the Sunfoil Dolphins. A highlight on our calendar was The Showdown at the Coast exhibition match between the Sunfoil Dolphins and the Cell C Sharks. Hollywoodbets used this as another opportunity to focus on its charitable work and donated R26 750 each to Malvern Children’s Home and Umlazi Cricket Club.
We look forward to 2017 when we will continue to work in partnership with valued charity organisations and disadvantaged soccer teams. We as the Hollywood Group will continue doing what we do best, giving back to the communities around us and continuing to create jobs in our beautiful country.
We thank our 3 500 team members for their continued support and dedication, and most of all our charity organisations and soccer teams for playing a special role in changing so many lives.
