Silver Stars are optimistic that they will be part of the Telkom Charity Cup this year and represent their province in the one-day soccer spectacular.

The Tycoons - who are now based in North West province after Royal Bafokeng Sports Palace bought 51 percent of the club last season - are determined to qualify for the event.

It would be the first time that Stars take part in the tournament since they qualified for the elite league in 2003.

And almost everybody in North West is said to have come on board to vote for them.

Club public relations officer Susan Phala said it would be unfair for North West residents if Stars did not qualify because the event was going to be played at Mmabatho Stadium on August 4.

"Royal Bafokeng is a company of the nation and we've appealed to every person in the province to vote for us," she said.

"We've secured a sponsorship that is also assisting us to amass a lot of votes. We're using our land-lines and the sponsor pays for them.

"The team has been playing well, ending the league programme in the second spot.

"We also won the inaugural Telkom Knockout Cup and we lost in the semifinals of the Absa Cup," she said.

Phala said being the only club in the elite league in the province, they were certain that everybody there will vote for them.

By 5.05pm yesterday, Mamelodi Sundowns were still leading with 15998 votes and Kaizer Chiefs were second with 12 197 votes.

The Tycoons were third with 11402, followed by Orlando Pirates who had collected 8 068 votes. Bloemfontein Celtic were pushed to fifth place with 3 380 votes.

The rest of the teams had not reached the 1 000 mark by 5.05pm yesterday.
