Disney Africa has announced that the former Bafana Bafana and Leeds United soccer start, Lucas Radebe, will front a series of local shorts and lend his skills as a mentor for Disney XD’s brand-new soccer-themed ‘Series 11’. “I am honoured to be involved in this partnership with Disney XD,” says Lucas Radebe on the Disney 11 campaign.
“This campaign covers a number of issues that are close to my heart including football development and working with kids. I’m excited to be a mentor to show them that, like me, they can start from the bottom and reach great heights through hard work, determination and belief in themselves and their abilities.”
The viewers will be able to see Lucas re-enacting some of the most amazing goals and re-live the unforgettable moments from the series. Lucas will also be offering tips, trade tricks and valuable nuggets from his career. In association with DSTv, Disney will also launch a once-in-a-lifetime competition across South Africa for kids to get the chance to win an exclusive mentoring session with the Star. The show will hit TV screens in May and airs at 16.50 each weekday on Disney XD.
