SuperSport United captain Ricardo Katza will lead some of his teammates and the team's development players on a visit to Kroonstad to hand over gifts to 20 schools tomorrow.
The trip to the northern Free State town is part of Phumelela's "Soccer in the Community" project, and will also include a friendly game between SuperSport's Under-15 team against a Kroonstad Phumelela Select XI, which should give the locals an opportunity to catch the eye of the development staff.
United's PRO, David Skosana hailed the sponsors for making the trip possible.
"We have a marriage made in heaven, whereby we emphasise to our players in the academy how important education is.
"We think by exposing them to other pupils, we are encouraging them to take their education seriously because, as we all know, life does not end at 35 and if you are not educated, what are you going to do with the rest of your life?".
In addition to Katza, Daine Klaite and Swaziland international Dennis Masina will be handing over equipment that includes soccer balls, a medical aid kit and other soccer essentials. It starts at 2pm at Loubser Park
