Cape Town - Teko Modise has joined SportsPesa as one of their brand ambassadors after bringing an end to an illustrious playing career.

In the aftermath of his retirement, Cape Town City chairman John Comitis said Modise would remain with the club in some capacity and now he has agreed on a deal with the current title sponsor of the Citizens.

"South African football legend, Teko Modise, has announced his next move by becoming the latest SportPesa Brand Ambassador.

"'The General' joins his childhood hero, Doc Khumalo, as a representative of Africa's premier gaming platform and Cape Town City FC's title sponsor, as they continue to innovate and grow the local game in South Africa," SportPesa said in a press release.

"SportPesa is thrilled to announce Teko Modise as brand ambassador! He is a fantastic addition to the team. Alongside Doc Khumalo, whom Teko has always admired, I think the two can do great things for the brand and bring the same magic touch they had on the field to the projects we're undertaking to empower and develop professional and grassroot football in SA," SportPesa South Africa General Manager, Vincent de Speville added.

The 36-year-old follows in the footsteps of his idol Doctor Khumalo, who is also an ambassador for the sports gaming platform.
