Platinum Stars to strengthen ties in Rustenburg

The final leg of Platinum Stars’ MTN8 trophy tour will take place on Friday, when the club presents their prize to the Executive Mayor, Cllr Mpho Khunou

Dikwena lifted the second major trophy in the club’s history when they outlasted Orlando Pirates in a penalty shootout in the MTN8 final in Durban on September 28.

Having already paraded the trophy around the North West province, the club will finish their tour with a special ceremony at the offices of the Municipality of Rustenburg at the Impala Sports Grounds.

The team will begin their parade in Tlhabane, before heading to the Rustenburg Taxi Rank and finally the Waterfall Mall. From there they will take the trophy to the municipality offices and at 12h00 will hand the MTN8 prize over to Executive Mayor Khunou.

The Dikwena players will also hold a special soccer clinic that will involve local schools in the area.

“The aim is for us to strengthen our ties with the local municipality and general support from the community of Rustenburg. We see it as a club for all of the people of the North West province,” says Platinum Stars Supporters’ Co-coordinator & Media Relations head Aubrey Molobi.

“We are also encouraging fans to wear their replica jerseys on Football Fridays and the Rustenburg municipality will be giving away t-shirts to fans who attend the ceremony on Friday.

“Players will also be on hand to sign autographs and interact with supporters. There will be entertainment from local musicians and as this will be the last leg of our trophy tour, we urge people to come out in numbers to catch a final glimpse of the MTN8 silverware."
