Nedbank Cup

Nedbank Empowers Youth Through Sports

The Nedbank Cup has proven to be more than just a fixture that identifies South Africa’s premier knockout club at all levels of play. The added spin-offs to the tournament enable young players from the third tier right up to the Premier Soccer League to live out their dreams as professional football players. 
 
Through the years, the competition has launched many careers in the Premier Soccer League, while the Nedbank Ke Yona Team Talent Search continues to scout and develop South Africa’s future football stars at a grassroots level.
 
Nedbank’s involvement in empowering the youth of South Africa stretches well beyond this and as we celebrate Youth Month in June - Nedbank in association with The Sports Trust and the Department of Sport and Recreation has unveiled multipurpose sports facilities in schools across South Africa.
 
From 2013 to 2016, Nedbank has donated three state-of-the-art multipurpose sports courts to schools at a cost of between R1-million and R1.2-million each, with the most recent of these being the multipurpose sports court at Ivory Park Primary School in Gauteng.
Nedbank has further donated over 500 training kits to schools, with a total investment of over R5-million.
The Nedbank Ke Yona Team Talent Search is another initiative by Nedbank that has also proven to be a massive success since it was first staged in 2013, with an impressive 16 players earning professional contracts - many of the youngsters have gone on to become influential playmakers for their respective teams.
 
One of which is Bafana Bafana international, Maphosa Modiba, who was part of the 2014 class, and is making head waves with this year’s Nedbank Cup finalists SuperSport United.
