THE Africa Sport Youth Development Academy received a well-deserved R10million sponsorship from Ericsson South Africa in Johannesburg this week.
The two parties signed a five-year deal on Wednesday. In attendance were Phil Mogodi, Stanley "Screamer" Tshabalala, Wellington Manyathi and World Cup ambassador Phil Masinga, among others.
The academy, founded by former Bafana Bafana star Harold "Jazzy Queen" Legodi in 2004 with 40 boys, has already made an impact.
Joseph Molangoana and Lehlohonolo Masalela, both from Platinum Stars, Orlando Pirates' Oupa Manyisa, Mpho Makola of Free State Stars and Patrick Phungwayo of Bidvest Wits are among the players mentored by the academy.
Tshabalala said: "It's so good to see our former professional players like Jazzy Queen ploughing back into the community. He is not only developing players but also teaching them life skills.
"A number of youngsters are highly successful products of Jazzy Queen's academy."
Former professional soccer player Jacob "Buddah" Mathathe, who is a shareholder at Ericsson, said the academy deserved the money to help them unearth more soccer talent in the country.
"It's all about ensuring we produce quality players for the 2014 Fifa World Cup. Jazzy Queen must be commended for a job well done."
