Bloemfontein Celtic supporters have done it again.

This time they have been presented with new office equipment to bolster their interaction with the multitudes of their members across the country.

The sponsorship was initiated by Superb Homes and Free State MEC of local government and housing, Joel Mafereka.

The executive committee of the supporters' club will now enjoy the benefits of a laptop, a digital camera, a refrigerator, a microwave oven and a filing cabinet, among other things.

Celtic's supporters are the only ones to have won an award in the Premier Soccer League.

Speaking at the handover, attended by more than 400 passionate supporters of Siwelele, Stephen Ramabodu of Superb Homes said the initiative was vital for local teams in particular because it would ensure growth and develop a common spirit for the province's people.

"We found it imperative to be associated with the leading club in terms of supporters in the country.

"So this is our contribution by way of giving back to the community for a good cause," said Ramabodu.

An ecstatic Mafereka pointed out that this sponsorship had shown a commitment that "as Free Staters we need to help our team to greater heights".
