Eastern Cape Liquor Board in partnership with Aware.org to host anti-alcohol abuse sporting tournament

Eastern Cape Liquor Board in collaboration with aware.org will roll out a sporting programme for the community of Baleni in Mbizana in a bid to fight alcohol abuse and underage drinking.

In an endeavour to mitigate excessive consumption of alcohol and underage drinking in the Eastern Cape, a pilot project was launched in 2018.

More than 16 soccer teams and netball teams from around the Amadiba Administrative Area will participate in the tournament, which will target both underage and youth over the age of 18.

The sporting programme will be used to educate and share information on the dangers associated with the alcohol abuse with the aim of reducing reckless consumption of alcohol. The theme for the tournament is #AwareofTomorrow.

Media is, therefore, invited to join the initiative, which is scheduled to take place as follows:

Date: 09 February 2019

Venue: Baleni Sport Grounds (Mbizana)

Time: 08h00
