The third day of a weekend dedicated to the Orlando Pirates 65th Anniversary celebrations saw a fun-filled Corporate 7 A-Side Tournament at the Arthur Block Training Grounds in Mayfair.

This Tournament was played under clear blue skies, with sounds of music from the Castle Loud Van, laughter and cheering intermingled with the scent of picnics and braais.

The Club wished to include the Corporate World in their anniversary celebrations, but such was the success of the event, they now wish it to be included in the end-of-year festivities on an annual basis.

Orlando Pirates Football Club sincerely thanks the following companies for participating and making the day memorable for all.

  • Vodacom
  • adidas SA
  • Standard Bank IT
  • Standard Bank Card
  • Standard Corp Merchant Bank
  • Discovery Health
  • Nissan SA

    Some companies entered two or more teams (38 in all) and the Club entered two teams; Pirates Masters and Yebo-Yes United. The tournament initially competed in a Round Robin with the top 16 teams going through to the main Cup Competition. The remaining teams contested for the Plate Competition.

    The final of the Cup Competition was between Standard Bank Card Division and Namitech A. After a "nail-biting" match and sudden death penalty shoot out the Cup went to Namitech A. Yebo-Yes United took 3rd place after a play-off against Vodacom A.

    Highveld Steel B Team won the Plate Competition when they beat Chemserve.

    The 2000 strong crowd was treated to an exhibition match, which was played by the senior Orlando Pirates side against the Development Programme coaches.

    Orlando Pirates Football Club would like to thank all Sponsors, Staff, Castle Lager, Coca-Cola, Worldwide Sports and Interactive Sport for all their hard work, dedication and professional work ethic in making this day a most special and enjoyable memory. A big thank you to the companies that donated prizes: Sansui, Boston City Campus, adidas SA.
