While most parents are still trying to figure out just what to do with their kids for these school holidays and the long weekend coming up – one good idea is to bring them down to St George’s Park for the Mzansi Super League (MSL) 2.0 playoff fixture between the Nelson Mandela Bay Giants and Tshwane Spartans tomorrow evening.
The gates at the venue will open at 15.30pm with the first ball set to be bowled at 17.30pm.
Besides an opportunity of seeing megastars like AB de Villiers, Lungi Ngidi and Imran Tahir in action, here are eight reasons why you should take the kids down to St George’s Park tomorrow.
- Clear skies with no rain expected. If you are in the Nelson Mandela Bay region, there is no better destination in the province than St George’s Park – one of the region’s most historic sites - that was built in 1859.
- There is a safe and secure designated kids zone in the family area at the stadium.
- South African renowned DJ, Kid Fonque, will be performing on the decks before the game starts, during the break and for two hours after the game.
- On-field activities during the break where the kids can participate and also get to be out on the field of play.
- Along with the stadium’s newly constructed disco floodlights - there will be a spectacular fireworks show that will happen after the match.
- The chance to be entertained by the famous St George’s Park band in the main pavilion as they churn out all of your favourite hits.
- Player signing session following the match where youngsters can get autographs from stars like Imran Tahir, Chris Morris, Junior Dala, Jon-Jon Smuts and Ben Dunk after the match.
