As part of the Zulu King Goodwill Zwelithini's 60th Jubilee celebrations, the Royal Charity will host the inaugural 2008 King's Cup on Sunday.

The King's Cup is a provincial one-day tournament involving four PSL teams.

Organisers spokesman Nhlanhla Mtaka, said staging the tournament was aimed at raising funds through sponsorship and gate fees for charity and causes not widely recognised.

"All proceeds from the event will be donated to philanthropic initiatives." he said.

"These include HIV and Aids organisations, community hospices, organisations dealing with socially vulnerable groups - the elderly, women, youth and handi- capped - and organisations promoting cultural heritage and social cohesion in the province."

KwaZulu-Natal is the epicentre of South Africa's HIV epidemic.

About 50percent of pregnant women attending public health services in the province are HIV positive.

Mtaka said the inaugural games would take place on Sunday at Kings Park Rugby Stadium in Durban.

The teams invited to take part are AmaZulu, BidVest Wits, Thanda Royal Zulu and Mamelodi Sundowns.

The draw was held late yesterday.

"The 2008 King's Charity Cup is expected to generate excitement since charity will be the ultimate winner.

The first game will start at 10am, with the showpiece final being played at 4pm.

All games will be broadcast live on SuperSport and Ukhozi FM.
