FAQ

HOW DO I SUPPORT AMBASSADORS FOOTBALL BY PARTICIPATING?

By registering for the event to walk or run (with or without a football) and getting people to sponsor you for every lap of 1.1km you complete within the allocated 90 minutes.

We provide a form where your sponsors can be listed. You tell your possible sponsors how many laps you are going to complete (e.g. 10 laps)  they decide what amount they are giving per lap (e.g. R20)  multiplying laps times amount of money to get the total amount they are donating (e.g. 10 laps x R20 = R200)

Deciding how many laps you will complete is a commitment you make. You are still allowed to run more and we assume that if you might run less for whatever reason, your sponsors won’t be to upset.

SMALL AMOUNTS COUNT

Just imagine… you have 10 people who give R10 per lap (or 20 people who give R5 per lap) and you run 10 laps – you are raising R1000! And then there will be let’s say 49 other people who do the same… so 50 x R1000 = R50 000 …woooow!

WHAT DOES ONE GET AT THE END?

The great and rewarding feeling of having been active and having fun, while making a difference in someone else’s life.

There will be some cool prizes waiting for the ones who run the most laps, as well as raising the most money (and perhaps some lucky draws.)

IS THERE AN ENTRANCE/REGISTRATION FEE?

No, there is no entrance or registration fee. You don’t have to pay anything in advance unless you want a T-shirt.

We are not charging a fee, as you will be raising money through getting others to sponsor you for the run/walk.

WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO TO?

Ambassadors Football will use the money to empower Coaches to step up to fill the father’s void in South Africa. We believe that a coach has a unique opportunity to impact a child at a place where they love to be, over a long period of time. Coaches as father figures establish authority, communicate identity, provide security and validate potential by coaching life through football. Watch this video or visit our Facebook page to find out more.

Part of the raised funds will be given to the Ambassadors Football team in Russia to support their football outreach initiatives leading up to the 2018 FIFA World Cup. You will enable the team to develop coaches as father figures, run football camps and help the local churches to impact their communities effectively.

WHAT IF I WANT TO DONATE MONEY MYSELF?

If you want to donate money yourself, you can sponsor a friend/family member who is joining for the run or you can just add yourself to your sponsor list.

WHAT DO I DO WITH THE COLLECTED MONEY?

You can bring the money in cash on the day of the event or you can EFT before or after the event into our Bank account:

HOW DO I GET A T-SHIRT?

If you want an Ambassadors moisture management shirt you can order one for R110 for adults, R90 for children (until 13/14yrs). To get one, you fill in your size on the registration form and pay the amount into the above account to confirm your order. Please note that the cut-off date for T-Shirt orders is the 1st of September.

HOW DOES ONE COUNT THE LAPS?

When you come on the day of the event you will get a card on which your laps will be counted/marked.

Please note that you are more than welcome to rest in between, sit out for a while and continue later. You simply have 90 minutes to complete as many laps as you can.
