A year ago Momentum launched the Cricket Sixes down in Cape Town and in 2014 they have decided to bring the epic day up to Johannesburg. The day will see the Legends Trust – Graeme Smith, Mark Boucher & Justin Kemp, bring the sporting day up to Old Ed’s Cricket Club in Houghton.
This is not just a cricket tournament it is also the “must attend” social sporting event of the year. It also promises to be bigger and better with more cricket legends, entertainment and of course heart, with all proceeds going to charities supported by the Legends Trust.
Charities will include the “Rhinos in Safe Hands”, formed by SAB and Mark Boucher in the hopes to register all rhinos in South Africa, and the Momentum to Excellence (M2E) bursary programme, which assists talented cricket players at school develop their game and gain quality education. To add to this, corporate teams will be able to bid on the favourite cricket legends to join their team at an invite-only golf day on the Friday before the match, with all the proceeds raised going to charity.
The Momentum Cricket Sixes will consist of a round-robin tournament with 12 corporate teams, including a selection of current and past SA Cricket Legends such as Pat Symcox, Jonty Rhodes, Jacques Kallis, Paul Harris, Alan Dawson, HD Ackerman, Makhaya Ntini and International stars Kevin Pietersen and Damien Martyn, who will go head-to-head on the cricket field whilst spectators enjoy the fun from the family area and style lounge.
The entertainment on the day will also be hosted by our friends from Ballz Radio, Ian F and Sasha Martinengo in the family area. There will also be the epic Style Lounge, which will serve delicious food and cocktails throughout the tournament whilst you rub your shoulders with your favourite cricket stars.
“We are proud to again be sponsoring the Momentum Cricket Sixes. Sure it’s a fun day, but at the heart of everyone’s contribution on the day, is giving back”, says Danie van den Bergh, Head: Momentum Brand. “Supporting Mark’s rhino charity and our commitment to developing sporting talent with a strong quality-education component are two worthwhile causes we are very happy to endorse. In years to come we want to have made a difference in the legacy we leave behind.”
