In a celebration of township football talent, a
new tournament joins the fore: Red Bull Kasi Cup. The tournament will give
talented footballers an extraordinary opportunity to showcase their natural
ability and skills at the Red Bull Football Academy Salzburg.
Red Bull Kasi Cup, which takes place on 28 September 2019 at Dorothy Nyembe
Park in Soweto, will see four of Gauteng’s top township football teams go
head to head. The teams emerged champions of their respective local kasi
tournaments earlier in the year.
The top participating teams are: Zak Park FC (Soweto), Jan Malambo 11
(Mamelodi), Gibos River Park FC (Soweto) and Snack FC (Thokoza).
Speaking at the launch, Red Bull Kasi Cup ambassador and South African
Professional Football Midfielder, Siphiwe Tshabalala said “As players we are
always looking for opportunities to showcase our talent and I am excited to
be part of this tournament. As a product of kasi football, I am honored to
champion the Red Bull Kasi Cup because platforms like these enable us to
continue showcasing new talent.”

Red Bull Kasi Cup is proudly partnered with PUMA as the technical sponsor
for all participating teams. PUMA will supply kit to all the players taking
part in the tournament.

“We have always been a supporter of football development and talent. As a
leading sports apparel, this partnership with Red Bull will ensure that we
assist these aspiring footballers to proudly showcase their skills and reach
their dreams. We are hopeful that by embarking on this journey with Red
Bull Kasi Cup, we will unearth the next football stars such as Tshabalala,”
said Tshepo Mashishi, Regional Marketing Manager at PUMA South Africa .
