We are proud to support multiple sports initiatives in local communities through our Nancy Tweddle Foundation.

As a long term sponsor of Rock-A-Fellas FC, a club who positively support young people to stay out of the prolific gang and drug related crimes associated with the Cape, we’re delighted to provide the latest update on their soccer successes!

Rock-A-Fellas Under16 Football Tournament

The Rock-A-Fellas FC Under16 team took part in what has been dubbed, ‘one of the hottest youth soccer events in Cape Town’. The annual Under16 ‘Tournament of Light’ stretched over September 8, 14 and 15 with the winning team receiving a trophy and winners medals.

Even a last moment change of venue couldn’t dampen the spirits as a great team effort saw the Rock-A-Fellas squad reach the quarter finals.

Under12 tournament finalists

In the recent Golden United Under12 tournament spanning 7-8 September, the Rock-A-Fellas team performed brilliantly, reaching the final.

24 teams entered the competition that saw Rock-A-Fellas pipped at the post 2-1 in the final to Khayelitsha’s Brothers FC.

Special commendation goes to Valesco Moss, who captained the side and ‘stole the show’ as he was named player of the tournament. He scored a goal in each of his five games on the way to the final and even saved two penalties in a penalty shootout!

Football play-off fun

Two Jupiter sponsored football teams from our farms in Hayoma and Schuitdrift, participated in a knock-out tournament last weekend.

The Game of Stars 2019 Vhembe District Play-offs saw multiple teams from the Provincial District of Limpopo compete for the coveted prize of R5,000, a trophy and the chance to go through to the October 2019 finals.

Both farm teams looked slick in their Jupiter branded kit and performed admirably in the Mark Fish Foundation tournament which saw Hayoma Farm unfortunately beaten in the semi-final.

We were only too pleased to provide Hayoma and Schuitdrift transportation on the day as well as refreshments and Jupiter branded bags.
