Africa’s Premier Social Football League Taken To Greater Heights

Following the success of Castle Lager’s inaugural Africa 5s social football league, the vibrant continental showpiece makes an astounding return this year by extending its reach to new markets.

Over and above the increase to the footprint, Castle Lager has further diversified by introducing a women’s league.

Castle Lager Brand Director, Vaughan Croeser expressed his delight and said: “We are thrilled by the return of the Africa 5’s league, which is set to be   bigger and better than last year’s edition.  The inclusion of women is not only integral in sustaining societal interactions but an emphasis on Castle Lager’s position of being at the forefront of fortifying bonds and friendships.”
 
We are excited about the inclusion of Ghana, Nigeria and Uganda as that will expand our footprint across the African continent and cement Castle Lager’s role of creating and sustaining friendships beyond borders.” Croeser added.
 
Country champions will battle it out for the coveted trophy and Africa 5s title in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.
