Charity Spectacular is back in the form of F.A.M.E Charity Cup soccer spectacular tournament
F.A.M.E Soccer Charity Cup was officially launched on the Wednesday 6th July 2016 at Meropa Casino and Entertainment World, outside the City of Polokwane
The inaugural pre-season tournament will take place on Saturday 6 August 2016.
It will feature new Premier Soccer League (PSL) outfit Baroka Football Club, Newly promoted NFD outfit Magezi Football Club and Black Leopards Football Club who are in the NFD themselves as well as Kaizer Chiefs.
The tournament is about raising funds for charity organizations in the Province as well as bursaries for students in need of financial support.
Chiefs last played a pre-season tournament at the Stadium in 2011 when they played English Premiership giants Tottenham Hotspurs in the Vodacom Challenge.
The idea behind it is to revive the hugely popular Charity Spectacular that used to draw crowds of over 100 000 in years gone by, which has now been replaced by the two-team Carling Black Label Cup.

“The matches will be played in one day and all the teams will bring all their players including new recruits.”
” This is the provincial tournament and we are urging soccer fans to come in numbers and help us to achieve our objective of raising funds. ”
“All the proceeds will go to different charity organizations in the province,” Makananisa said.
When asked why they had invited Kaizer Chiefs he said
“It also has a huge command in the province and we want to use as a draw card, it has huge following in the country and the province.,” Makananisa concluded.
