British Premier League fans are in for a treat as the tournament organisers on Wednesday confirmed that Cape Town host the official Barclays Premier League Live fan park on March 19 and 20 at Camps Bay high School.

Through this initiative fans will get the chance to get up close and personal with the Barclays Premier League Trophy, meet former players, visit team tents and watch matches live on a 100-metre screen.

It will be free, interactive experience designed for the entire family to enjoy.

Hosted by the Premier League and their title sponsor, Barclays, the park will be open from 12noon each day and will close shortly after the matches finish.

Two of South Africa’s greatest Premier League players, Quinton Fortune and Lucas Radebe, will join other Premier League legends like Peter Schmeichel, Robbie Fowler and Shaun Goater in giving fans the opportunity to rub shoulders with some of their heroes.

All of the action will be overseen by John Dykes, the lead presenter for Super Sports’ coverage of the Premier League, who will be on stage, providing insight into all of the weekend’s exciting match-ups including Everton v Arsenal on Saturday 2.45pm and Sunday’s grand finale, the Manchester derby at 6pm.

Fans interested in attending should register at http://www.bpllive.com/ or by dialling *134*275#. Entry will be granted on a first come, first served basis, but all fans must register before entering.

To help get fans to the free event, a free park and ride facility will run from the Grand Parade, Mitchells Plain and Khayelitsha on a loop system to Camps Bay High School.

“BPL Live is all about bringing the electrifying atmosphere of a Premier League match to our international fans,” said Premier League presenter John Dykes.

“The first ever BPL Live in Johannesburg reminded us just how passionate South African fans are about the Premier League.

“I can’t wait to see that the enthusiasm the Cape Town fans will bring to the park now that they’re getting their chance.”

As part of the Premier League’s commitment to inspiring sport participation in communities around the world, there will be a Premier Skills community coaching course run the week leading up to BPL Live at Grootbos Football Foundation.

Premier Skills has already trained nearly 200 football coaches and referees in South Africa who have in turn engaged over 12,000 young people.

MTN Joyous Celebration’s call to heal the nation through music

Metrosmag,SA

Published

In December 2016, MTN Joyous Celebration joined hands and hearts with The Potter’s House of Dallas, TX, under the leadership of Bishop T.D. Jakes for a memorable and unprecedented recording. This event has given birth to the ensembles’ 21st album, aptly themed “Heal our Land” and comes at a time when our nation and the world at large needs much healing.

According to co-founder, Pastor Jabu Hlongwane, the recording and the much-anticipated album is a seed that Joyous Celebration jointly and prayerfully planted together with The Potter’s House. “May it germinate. May it reach every heart across the globe and bear fruits that will bring healing to our land,” he says. “We ask everyone to join us to pray for the healing we so desperately need.”

Celebrating over two decades of great, heart-stopping gospel music that has captivated audiences across the world, the internationally acclaimed ensemble will kick off their Joyous 21 tour in Johannesburg, offering a three-night spectacle from 14 to 16 April 2017 at Carnival City Casino.

“We are celebrating our 21st anniversary, and there is a lot to be excited about or this year’s tour because we are coming of age. The response we encountered in the USA during the recording and the support, prayers and well wishes from people here at home and across the globe was phenomenal. For this, we are truly humbled and believe that not only will the world receive our latest offering with enthusiasm but will also strongly relate and resonate with the “Heal our Land” message”, states co-founder, conductor and producer, Lindelani Mkhize.

“We have come a long way with MTN Joyous Celebration and are proud to be associated with this award-winning ensemble as they come of age with their 21st offering to their multitudes of fans. We have no doubt that this will be the biggest tour in the group’s history and we hope everyone will join hands and spread the “Heal our Land” message that MTN Joyous Celebration will be sharing with communities” concluded Larry Annetts, Chief Consumer Officer at MTN SA.

And keeping up with their tradition and passion of nurturing, developing and introducing fresh talent, the production also welcomes “newbies” Siyakha Tshayela (Alto), Khaya Sibanyoni and Gospel Silinda (Tenors), Frank Mavhimara (Guitar), Junior Petja (Keyboard), Khola Phalatse (Bass Guitar) and an additional 3 extremely talented and gifted members to their brass section.

Tickets for the Carnival City show are running out, purchase your tickets at TicketPro and related outlets including Postnet stores from R190 per person. Tickets for the rest of the tour, will be available from 31 March 2017 at Computicket and Shoprite / Checkers outlets nationwide.
