As the 2019/20 Absa Premiership got underway with some great action and fantastic goals this weekend, passionate soccer fan Augustine Raphasha walked away with R100 000 from the first Woza Nazo match at the Makhulong Stadium on Sunday.
Raphasha, an ardent Orlando Pirates fan, became an instant winner as he became the first Woza Nazo Shootout winner in the exciting fan competition that will set the grandstands alight at the stadiums this season.
“I’m extremely delighted about this prize. It was a nice surprise to see myself among the finalists for the Woza Nazo Shootout. These winnings will go a long way in helping my parents complete some of their projects at home”, said the resident from Tembisa.
The Woza Nazo Shootout is the new fan competition introduced by Absa to replace the Kick for a Million competition, which took place over the past two Absa Premiership seasons.
On match day, five Absa customers who attend the Woza Nazo fixture are pre-selected from the stands and brought to the pitch at halftime to kick against a legendary Absa Premiership goalkeeper in a sudden death competition until there is only ONE winner.
The next Woza Nazo match will be at the Nelson Mandela Stadium on Wednesday, 14 August, when Chippa United host Mamelodi Sundowns and the second Woza Nazo Shootout winner will be revealed on the night.
