Hollywoodbets Ixopo chose to support Ocean Swallows FC for the Hollywoodbets’ My Community Programme for 2020/21.
Ocean Swallows FC
The club is made up of twenty-three players. They get together to practise four times a week at the local Empofini ground. Players range in age from 14 years of age up to 18 years old. Ocean Swallows was started in 2014 with their main goal being to develop the young players and to motivate these youngsters to take an interest in healthy pursuits like sport instead of alcohol or drugs.
The Hollywoodbets Ixopo Team heard about this club and what a difference they are making in their community. However, because they are situated in a rural area, they really struggle to find sponsors. The Team therefore decided to donate a full playing kit to one of the teams.
Coach Sipho Radebe was thankful for this much-needed sponsorship.
“Because of this donation our players will now be proud to go to the grounds and play. We believe they will do their best because they are now wearing these professional jerseys,” he said
