CAPS in bid to lure fans

HARARE - CAPS United have teamed up with WilbeCynth Sports and Entertainment Consultancy to introduce activities for fans in a bid to boost attendances for their home matches.

The Half Time Game Show is set to commence tomorrow during Makepekepe’s home tie against Triangle at the National Sports Stadium.

The Game Show is a copyright protected game designed to entertain spectators before the match, or during the half time.

The 35 Metre Kick, Score and Win Challenge © is a "reality game show."

It is a game in which 10 participants drawn from the spectators or audience attempt to kick a football into a hoop placed 35 meters from point of execution.

In a press release, CAPS United spokesperson Joice Kapota said the fans should look forward to exciting home ties.

“We want to bring the fun back,” Kapota said. “We want fans to be excited on match day, and not just about the style of football.

“We have engaged specialists at finding ways to improve pre-match and half time entertainment so Makapekepe fans can look forward to a good time when the team plays at home.”

The partnership sees the two parties coming back together after a false start in 2004 when their initial proposed deal failed to take off.

In the initial deal worth Z$3 million back then, the consultancy company was supposed to market CAPS brand locally and abroad while at the same time managing all CAPS home matches during the 2004 Premiership season.

Desire Sigauke, the WilbeCynth principal consultant, said fans stood a chance to win prizes for taking part in the activities during the halftime break.

“As the only such initiative this highly-anticipated Halftime Entertainment Game Show will give the fans a chance to win amazing prizes,” he said.

“We are excited to provide a fully integrated fan engagement experience for soccer fans.”
