Massiv 5s

It was nothing but net for Massiv Metro’s #Massiv5s Tournament on Friday, 11 October at Discovery Soccer Park.

More than 8 teams took part in the festivities to raise funds for the urban, mass-market station’s CSI initiative – The Salvation Army Ethembeni Children’s Home, whom they’ve adopted until February 2020.

Football legends such as Jabu Mahlangu, Mark Fish and Portia Modise went head-to-head with corporate and private teams such as Team JunkMail, Team OnCue, The Mbambo Rangers, Teams YS Connect, Team Lehong, Team MoFaya and more.

Off the pitch, Massiv XI, the mecca of football lovers, broadcast live from the tournament and kept listeners up to speed with what was happening on and off the pitch; followed by The Weekend Special, hosted by DJ Duzy, Boo-C and The Usual who added their zany energy to the mix and got the weekend kick-started.

On the pitch, each team gave it their best donned in bright Massiv Metro bibs as they each vied for the top spot. In the end, Team YS Connect I walked away victorious as the champs of #Massiv5s after a nail-biting final against team Junk Mail.

The evening was closed off with a raffle where a weekend glamping experience at Koester Farm, for 10 – valued at R8000,00 – was up for grabs.

#Massiv5s raised over R30,000 in funds for The Salvation Army Ethembeni Children’s Home, which will be handed over at the end of October.

A MASSIV thank you to all the teams who took part and helped raise money towards The Salvation Army Ethembeni Children’s Home: YS Connect I & II, Massiv Metro, Junk Mail, The Mbambo Rangers, Feminine First Touch, OnCue, Team Lehong, Team MoFaya.

The next #Massiv5s will be in January 2020 – stay plugged into Massiv Metro for more details.
