Kaizer Chiefs are pleased to announce the signing of a partnership agreement with prominent medical aid scheme, Medshield.
The agreement, which will run for a three-year period with an option to extend it, will see Medshield cater to the Club’s medical aid needs. Players, technical team and staff will be the beneficiaries of the arrangement, saving the Club and the individuals substantial costs which the Club will reinvest in the running of the business.
Established in 1968 (two years before Kaizer Chiefs’ formation), and with over 79 000 members and a beneficiary base in excess of 160 000, Medshield is one of South Africa’s leading medical aid providers.
“We are delighted that a reputable scheme such as Medshield has agreed to partner with our brand and we believe both of us will benefit immensely from this partnership,” said Kaizer Chiefs Executive Chairman, Kaizer Motaung. “Football business is evolving and overheads are escalating all the time. With a trusted medical aid provider, we will surely be able to offset some of these costs and reinvest in the running of the business. We always believe in quality and ensuring that our players are in tip top condition. Together with Medshield, we will work hard to make sure that players and technical teams are looked after from a medical point of view.”
All members of the Club’s general staff will also be brought on board to obtain medical cover for themselves and their families.
Chief Executive Officer of Medshield:
Soon Amakhosi supporters will be able to benefit from this new deal as Kaizer Chiefs and Medshield will embark on education and CSI drives to educate supporters about the importance of medical aid and healthy living.
Medshield’s vision includes caring about a healthier nation and their mission is to provide access to affordable high quality health care to all, through sustainable partnerships.
In addition, for the forthcoming three years, the Kaizer Chiefs medical team kit will be adorned with Medshield branding during matches and the scheme will enjoy prominent marketing opportunities provided by Kaizer Chiefs.
Supporters are encouraged to attend home games and roadshows where the partnerships will be showcased and enjoy the benefits of this opportunity.
