G.U.D. renews Sharks Academy bursary sponsorship

We renewed our Sharks Academy sponsorship in 2017, which offers sports bursaries that include a tertiary education for talented youth. G.U.D. Holdings is the biggest player sponsor of the Academy since 2012.

G.U.D. presented the sponsorship cheque to the Sharks Academy on 14 October 2017 during the Cell C Sharks vs Western Province Currie Cup match at Growthpoint Kings Park Rugby Stadium.

“We are passionate about South African sport and youth development at G.U.D and have awarded many sports bursaries to talented youth since partnering with Sharks Academy. We are very proud of the G.U.D. sponsored students who have used this opportunity as a platform to further their rugby ambitions; congratulations Bandisa Ndlovu on your recent achievement securing a contract at The Sharks.” says Chris Haworth, CEO, G.U.D. Holdings (Pty) Ltd. Bandisa follows the footsteps of former G.U.D. sponsored students, Franco Marais, and Mzamo Majola who play for The Sharks.
