TELKOM CONTINUES its partnership with the Premier Soccer League.
As part of its 12-year celebration, both organisations launched the 2018/19 Telkom Knockout Tournament (TKO) campaign recently.
Last season winners’ Bidvest Wits open their account against Free State Stars, in a draw conducted at SuperSport offices.
“Soccer lovers are the true owners of the beautiful game,” says Braam Wessels Head of Sponsorships at Telkom.
“They’re fully immersed in the flow of the game whether by suggesting the starting line-up, which player to substitute or the tactics that should be employed on match day. Telkom is giving them an opportunity to also enjoy the feeling of pocketing prize money and winning wonderful prizes for predicting the score during TKO matches.”
This year’s edition comes packed with exciting and rewarding prizes for supporters.
“One of the most important things in today’s ever-changing world is to ensure that you remain close to the supporters and show appreciation for their loyalty. Working with our sponsors, we have to constantly look at ways of staying in touch with those who passionately follow the beautiful game.
We are thrilled at Telkom’s plans to bring this much-needed consumer engagement drive aimed at maintaining excitement for the game,” says acting PSL chief executive Mato Madlala.
To stand a chance to win weekly prizes and a grand prize of R1 million, Telkom customers (existing and new customers that purchase and activate a new prepaid Telkom SIM card) simply dial *123#, purchase a bundle on Mo’nice and predict the score.
What’s more, fans who predict the score correctly will get their bundle purchase multiplied by the highest score line each round of matches – guaranteed.
“What this means is that if the match between Team A and Team B, for example, produces 5 goals and is the highest score tally against other matches in that round, every Telkom customer who predicted the score correctly will get their purchase multiplied 5 times,” adds Wessels.

Meanwhile, kwaito star, rapper and a humble-soul Kwesta, who is the Telkom ambassador gave a resounding performance at the company’s launch of its latest addition, FreeMe prepaid bundles.
This is one of the benefits that comes with Telkom’s latest summer campaign aptly themed Summer of More.
Customers on Telkom’s FreeMe Post-paid are still able to enjoy up 200+ hours or 50GB free data for YouTube streaming on the FreeMe 5GB and higher plans.
Executive: Marketing & Communications for Telkom Consumer- Thami Majola said “More than half of data used in South Africa is through the Telkom network.
This SUMMER OF MORE responds to what South Africans are looking for, to be able to do more with their lives powered by affordable data”.
Telkom continues its drive to give consumers MORE for less across their products.
“We are thrilled to be in partnership with YouTube as Telkom is the network that continues to grow its YouTube users at a faster rate than any other network in the country”, says Majola.
The launch fete were held at the two swanky Joburg’s hot spots- Braamfontein’s Randlords and AGOG Gallery in Maboneng.
