Netball South Africa (NSA) has signed a two-year sponsorship deal with a betting company Hollywoodbets. The partnership kicks off this month and will see the company become the official betting partner of NSA. The betting company’s logo will be displayed on all playing kits of teams in the Telkom Netball League (TNL) and the Proteas.
NSA president Cecilia Molokwane said, “The time for us to grow the sport is here and I am extremely delighted that we are identifying the right partners to do this with.”
“Hollywoodbets’ timing is on point. We are well on our way to turning the sports professional and such partnerships are edging us a step closer to reaching our goal. Our commitment since 2017 has been that we want to take netball back to the people and we believe that with Hollywoodbets we will be able to do so,” adds Molokwane.
The company also sponsors the KZN women’s provincial cricket team and through its foundation offers support to grassroots women’s sports such as rugby, cricket and netball.
“Hollywoodbets has had the pleasure of sponsoring netball teams across the country with sports kits through our community initiatives,” said Hollywoodbets head of operations Africa Sandisiwe Bhengu.
Molokwane added that “over and above this partnership, we will also be doing a lot of corporate social initiative (CSI) and development projects with the Hollywoodbets Foundation, linked to the development of this sport. This goes beyond us; we are going into the communities that have given us the amazing players that we currently have.”
