IN the build-up to the 2010 World Cup, Castle Lager embarked on a nationwide campaign to recruit 16 SuperFans. Each Premier Soccer League club was represented, and the 16 SuperFans united for a common cause: to come together with Castle Lager and rally behind our national team Bafana Bafana.
With South Africa being chosen to host the African Cup of Nations in 2013, Castle Lager will once again show its support for Bafana Bafana as we host this glittering continental showpiece. Castle Lager are now looking for the next batch of SuperFans who will represent, not only their Premier Soccer League club, but also the entire nation as Bafana Bafana play for glory.
Over the course of the next few weeks, Castle Lager will be visiting each and every Premier Soccer League team at their home venue in order to give every supporter an opportunity to become a SuperFans finalist.
The SuperFans supporter search will take place two hours before the match at the stadium. In order to stand a chance to be selected as a finalist, supporters will need to showcase their passion and enthusiasm for their chosen club. The judges are looking at the following criteria which will influence selection: dressing up in their best football regalia and auditioning at the SuperFans event at the Castle Corner set up at each stadium.
The first match that has been selected to launch the new SuperFans search will be Jomo Cosmos versus Moroka Swallows with the match taking place at Sinaba Stadium in Daveyton tomorrow. The Castle Lager SuperFans event will start at 5.30pm, two hours before kickoff.
Cosmos fans are invited to come and try out for a chance at being shortlisted to become one of the 16 new Castle Lager SuperFans.
