Soweto giants Orlando Pirates have announced LG Electronics as its official consumer electronics and mobile partner for 2018.
“The synergy between these two brands made it a natural progression for us to partner up with LG Electronics, as they perfectly complement the character of the club and our aim of being a world-class team,” said Joseph Bertrand, Brand & Sponsorship Manager at Orlando Pirates.
The partnership will focus on upgrading the hospitality facilities at the Orlando Stadium, where the stadium suite areas will be fitted with top of the range LG UHD TVs and the club’s training facility, the Rand Stadium, will also receive a makeover.
With effect from the 2018/19 season, the Buccaneers will also introduce the Fans Player of the Month, where the club’s supporters will be given an opportunity to vote online for their favourite player.
The winning player will be awarded with the latest V30+ Smartphone, while one lucky voter will win themselves a Orlando Pirates hamper.
