The MAP Games always go the extra mile towards giving back to the community of Alexandra.
During the last 10 years the MAP Games together with Boston City Campus & Business College awarded over 200 full bursaries to youths from Alexandra. These bursaries gave the recipients an opportunity to further their studies and thus a chance to make a success of their lives.
The MAP Games donate groceries worth R20 000 yearly to different old age organisations and Feeding Schemes.
The MAP Games employs over 100 security staff during the 10 weeks of the tournament including 10 ground staff, who assist with keeping the playing fields playable. 40 cleaners assist with clearing the rubbish left on the grounds after the matches. We also provide an opportunity for plus 80 vendors who sell food and beverages free of charge during the games.
During the course of the tournament, more people around the township and surrounding areas use public transport to get to and from the grounds therefore increasing the taxi economy. MAP Games also provide a platform for multi-talented people to showcase their talents through music performances and free style juggling.
Our tournament gives students studying events and sports management an opportunity to do hours of valuable practical work. Post tournament, 4 MAP selection teams comprising of the best players in all the juniors age groups will be selected and they will undergo training for 6 months. This helps the youngsters to sharpen their skills and matches against academy teams are played, where the MAP players will have an opportunity to make an impact and have a chance to make it into professional ranks.
Through the disabled schools sports day we have been able to donate 50 wheel chairs and other walking aids to students.
