“Bring Back The Charity Cup!” – Reader’s Voice

Default

Mamelodi Sundowns and Kaizer Chiefs recently agreed to participate in a pre-season encounter, named the Shell Helix Ultra Cup, which will in effect, replace the Carling Black Label Cup.

The cup looks up to standard and is appreciated, but as supporters, we have been calling for the classic Telkom Charity Cup to be reinstated. We don't care about the sponsorship, but rather hope for the chance to build excitement in the run up to the new season, by voting for our favourite teams to participate in this annual contest.  

No pre-season event nor tournament has come anywhere close to the excitement of the Telkom Charity Cup. Soccer lovers looked forward to the traditional season curtain-raiser which provided good entertainment.  

Bring back the Charity Cup in its old format and allow clubs such as Bloemfontein Celtic the chance to compete with the likes of Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates.

What are your thoughts, should the Charity Cup make a return to local football?

According to Kick Off there is a hope of a second fixture in the near future. See the quote below: "The tournament will in future include a second fixture between two other clubs, and we will announce at an appropriate time who those teams are. “We have already finalised the third club and I am in the process of finalising the fourth club, after which we will make it known who will play in the second clash. “And then we will have a final. Now, the second clash will probably be in September, with the final probably in October this year.”

Great! The main purpose is to plough back to the needy and to generate funds for the teams which come up with ideas. They employ managers who come up with ideas to raise funds. Other teams must not expect Chiefs and Pirates to work for them. Yes the spactators are contributing to be entertained not that they were part of the management. They pay for being entertained. The organisers must arrange something good before the main entertainment which is the games. It's as simple as that.

Trasformation dude!! We need something new. You can't wish for Bondarencho to come coach again. I once recommended the exactly what they did with the MDC Shield challenge. That was my brain child offered for free. Maybe they were experimenting my idea. It worked well. It can be better than the Charity cup of yesteryear. [(Chiefs, Pirates, Wits, ). (Sundowns, Supersport, Highlands Park), (Baroka, Polokwane City, Leopards), (Bloem Celtic, Free State Stars) (Maritzburg Utd, AmaZulu, Arrows) (Chippa, Cape Town City). A group of 4 teams each (16) to compete by eliminating each other can be interesting.

I can't help but supprt the call.They claimed some "inovations" in minds when they discontinued this prestigious tournament but NOTHING has EVER come close to it.Not that I blamme for trying that.But ifthey are listening leaders,this article as well as the following comments,are sufficient for them to just reinstate it.

@@azzaniawest u should come with suggestion not to just criticise only. We enjoyed watching the charity cup. Leopards, Chiefs, Celtic/ Maritzburg Pirates/ Sundwns would make the 4 teams in the charity cup. If we dont like the idea of the charity cup mayb we should hv a winners cup, mtn8, lig, nedbnk & telkm cup winners play against each other

Charity Cup gave the participating teams to try and test the depth of their squad before the season resumes. It gave many players a chance to shine and convince their coaches.

If recycling is bad we'd rather come up with something better than the Charity Cup(Which in my opinion was a festival of soccer) but if we can't we must swallow our pride and recycle the format. The Nedbank format has been there for decades and no one has beaten it. Neither the Black label cup nor the new Shell Heilux Ultra Cup come anywhere close to the Charity Cup if you know it.

What is attractive about Black label except the alcohol itself? All this article is yearning for is the power to be brought back to the supporters to choose the teams they want to see.Instead of repeating the same matches over and over again. Let those who buy tickets choose who they want to watch. It does not have to be the so called "big" teams. Any team that is playing exciting football can be voted in. For instance If people from Venda want to see the newly promoted Black Leopards can vote it in. If people from Cape town want to see their Cape Town City they can do like wise instead of a certain sponsor to dictate who should be participate. I repeat, They may be sponsoring but it's time they listen to those who buy the tickets.
