Chiefs teamed up with San Miguel in Addo Valley, just outside Port Elizabeth, in order to give back to a community in need, putting on soccer clinics conducted by the head of Kaizer Chiefs’ Scouting Department, Walter Steenbok, and assisted by Ace Khuse and fitness coach, Jamie Schultz.

San Miguel South Africa has been running a soccer community project, for their employees, in Addo ahead of the annual picking season ever since 2012, but they admit that things have gone up a notch since they got Amakhosi involved.

The company’s Marketing, Communication and CSR officer, Armand van der Merwe, has heaped praise on the Glamour Boys for their involvement in the project, telling the club’s official website, “The cooperation with Kaizer Chiefs started last year and they took it to a different level compared to the previous years…

“The club has a massive following in the Addo Valley area, and we are happy that Chiefs and San Miguel are working together again on this year’s community project. It’s all about creating an opportunity for youngsters in the area.”

Meanwhile, Chiefs’ Khuse was also impressed with how things went, saying, “The guys had a good understanding of what we wanted to do, and I liked the discipline, the commitment and the effort they put in… It’s not every day that these guys get into direct contact with Kaizer Chiefs. You can clearly see that this interaction is making them happy.

“It also gives them confidence and feeling respected, because Chiefs come here to train them. It makes them feel honoured and wanted. It feels great to be involved in this soccer community project. It’s nice to help bring a smile on peoples’ faces.”

A statement regarding the collaboration read, “The San Miguel and Kaizer Chiefs Soccer Community Project will end up in a tournament that will take place on Saturday, 7 March. There will also be a CSI activation on Friday, 6 March, when Amakhosi and San Miguel will visit two High Schools in the area.
