MTN8 Committed Another 3 Year Deal To PSL Sponsorship

MTN South Africa today reaffirmed its long-standing investment in local football when it announced the renewal of its sponsorship agreement with the Premier Soccer League (PSL) as the headline sponsor of the MTN8 competition, which has extended for three more years until 2014.

The much-anticipated tournament will see the top eight teams from last season commence battle to claim the R8 million – winner takes all prize – on the weekend of 03 August 2012. In keeping with the competition rules from the past season’s tournament, the PSL has confirmed that the top four teams from last season have secured home ground advantage in the quarterfinal stages.

“It is crisp, competitive and most of all, it is engaging. It is a season’s opener high on talk time. Cup competitions don’t come better than MTN8. Like a catwalk is to fashion revelation, MTN8 provides a platform and opportunity for supporters and fans to see the revelation of players for the new season.” commented PSL Chairman, Dr. Irvin Khoza.

The tournament, best described by its payoff line: ‘WAFA WAFA -Winner takes all’, is the richest Cup competition on the continent which features the top 8 teams from the previous season’s Premier Division league action. MTN8 has gained popularity with the Last Fan Standing (LFS) competition, a franchise that has become a feature landscape for South African football fans during the tournament.
