Nedbank is challenging KwaZulu-Natal football supporters to #Team4KZN ahead of the sold out Nedbank Cup final between Kaizer Chiefs and TS Galaxy set to take place at Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday.
KZN was hit by floods over the Easter weekend and they left devastating scenes all around the province, destroying homes and various infrastructures. As part of solidifying football’s status as ‘The Beautiful Game’, Nedbank has urged football lovers to show their support by retweeting Nedbank’s #Team4KZN post on Twitter with the bank pledging to contribute R5 towards relief efforts for every retweet of the post. Fans who show their support via retweet also have the added incentive of being entered into a draw for a chance to win tickets and VIP experience at the Nedbank Cup final.
“The 2019 Nedbank Cup final is one of the most anticipated events on the footballing calendar and is set to showcase a true David versus Goliath spectacle of football. Following the weather events in KZN, this match has however become about more than football. We will utilise the Nedbank Cup final to leave a lasting legacy by not only raising awareness for relief efforts ourselves, but also by enabling and galvanizing supporters to lend a hand in the province’s clean-up efforts,” said Head of Group Sponsorship and Cause Marketing at Nedbank, Tobie Badenhorst.
Nedbank and the Nedbank Green Affinity, in partnership with the Wild Trust, have started embarking on cleanup efforts at five beaches in and around the City of Durban. This initiative started on Saturday, 11 May and Sunday 12 May at Mangroves Beach and Durban Harbour respectively, the cleanups continue at the following venues:
• Wednesday, 15 May 2019 (08:00-12:00)
Beach cleanup: Umbogintwini beach (Meet at Amanzimtoti Golf Club)

• Saturday, 18 May 2019 (08:00-12:00)

Supporters are encouraged to join the cleanups to lend a hand with the first 400 volunteers at each event receiving complimentary tickets to the final, a Nedbank T-shirt and a goodie bag, as a token of appreciation for their participation.
