Telkom has been the official sponsor of the Telkom Knockout Tournament for a consistent 12 years at the back of a 17-year old relationship with the PSL.
“Soccer lovers are the true owners of the beautiful game, they’re fully immersed in the flow of the game whether by suggesting the starting line-up, which player to substitute or the tactics that should be employed on match day. Telkom is giving them an opportunity to also enjoy the feeling of pocketing prize money and winning wonderful prizes for predicting the score during TKO matches.” said Braam Wessels Head of Sponsorships at Telkom.
He added: “The glory of the beautiful game is in the number of goals scored.The goals are what fuels the passion of many football lovers and bestow champion status on the team that wins all its matches. Naturally, as proud sponsors of the tournament, we would like to see more balls in the back of the net and giving football fans an opportunity to walk away with prize money and multiple givebacks of their purchases during the campaign.”
“What this means is that if the match between Team A and Team B, for example, produces 5 goals and is the highest score tally against other matches in that round, every Telkom customer who predicted the score correctly will get their purchase multiplied 5 times,” adds Wessels.
