Moroka Swallows achieved a unique hat-trick of wins on Wednesday, but they could not have done so without the help of team sponsors, Volkswagen.
Swallows on Wednesday hammered Black Leopards 3-1 in Absa Premiership action, having also beaten Mamelodi Sundowns (last Wednesday) and Bloemfontein Celtic (Sunday) by the same margins.
This exceptional hat-trick, however, could not have happened without the help of sponsors VW, who came to Swallows' assistance after the 'Beautiful Birds' had suffered their fourth loss in a row, to Arrows, earlier in February.
The entire VW sales and marketing staff based at Midrand came to the Sundowns game at Loftus Stadium on February 27 to lend their support to their team.
Matt Gennrich (General Manager: Sales and Marketing) and Ryan Searle (Marketing and Communications Manager) both visited the team in the change room before the 'Downs match, to wish them luck and give them words of encouragement and support - and it has definitely worked!
Now, two more wins later, the 'Birds' are once again sitting pretty on the Absa Premiership standings in seventh place, before the evening matches.
Don't follow me, follow the 'Birds'!
