Springbok captain Siya Kolisi is on a mission to build more sportfields in under-privileged communities, with the building of the first sponsored rugby field already underway.
Kolisi recently visited the Mbekweni Youth Centre in Paarl, where the brand new rugby field is currently being build.
This initiative forms part of the collaboration between Kolisi and the lifestyle brand, Freedom of Movement’s aim to nurture new talent from underprivileged communities.
Kolisi says they will soon visit communities where there’s a need for a new sportsfield.
What a monumental moment for @fombrand & @siya_kolisi_the_bear, we have broken ground on the Mbekweni sports field ahead of time after receiving incredible support from South Africa with our FOM x Kolisi “Field Green Vellie” collaboration. #fomxkolisi pic.twitter.com/oqI1YjbqC8
