Betway launches 12th Man Campaign
On Tuesday the 19th of February 2019, Betway revealed an exciting initiative in partnership with football legend, Lucas ‘Rhoo’ Radebe titled the Betway 12th Man Campaign.
The ground-breaking initiative will see 10 ex-footballers (male & female) embarking on a life-changing six-month journey which will see them graduate with a variety of skills and qualifications to increase their chances of employment.

Our football is where it is today because of the time and effort they gave and I have to applaud Betway for recognizing and upskilling them in such an impactful manner” commented former Bafana Bafana captain, Radebe.
