Sky Blues for the Multiply Titans in Seychelles once again | 28 August 2019
The popular South African cricket team, Multiply Titans, once again visited Seychelles as part of their pre-season tour.
Organised by Gran Kaz Entertainment alongside various partners including the Seychelles Tourism Board (STB), the Multiply Titans’ stay is the second consecutive visit the celebrity team have undertaken in the paradise like destination.
The team arrived on the new Air Seychelles aircraft ‘Veuve’ on Wednesday August 21 along with their coach, Mark Boucher and team administrator, Karen Smithies.
As part of their pre-season tour, the team hiked the Trois Frères trail with the Seychelles People’s Defence Forces on Thursday for an extensive workout.
The Titans also hosted the second children’s cricket clinic on Mahé, at Stad Popiler on Saturday, which gave approximately 200 local children the opportunity to learn more about cricket.
The clinic was followed by a charity golf match in the afternoon at the Anse Aux Pins golf course. Closing off their Seychelles tour, the Titans engaged in a friendly match against the Gran Kaz Kings on Sunday, where they defended their T20 title from last year.
Aside from focusing on their pre-season preparation, the Titans had an opportunity to experience the destination as they enjoyed a sea excursion on Creole Travel’s ‘Odezir’, where they also had the chance to visit Moyenne island.
The team were further exposed to the Seychellois lifestyle with a beach barbecue creole night evening at Avani Barbarons, where they resided during their stay.
During the evening, the South African celebrity guests enjoyed the fine taste of our local cuisine and the expression of the local talents through our traditional dances.
The team also experienced the warm Seychellois welcome as the Minister for Tourism, Civil Aviation, Ports and Marine, Didier Dogley and STB chief executive Sherin Francis made a point to meet with them.
Speaking about the second visit of the Multiply Titans, Mrs Francis commended Gran Kaz and its partners to commit to such a great event, which adds to the visibility of the destination.
“It is always a delight to have celebrities over on our shores; this second visit from the South African Titans is another opportunity for us to shine as multi-faced destination. The calendar of activities included a myriad of the best available activities in Seychelles. The best ambassadors for Seychelles remain the people, who have had a memorable time after all and it is all we aim to achieve as we partnered with the organisers,” said Mrs Francis.
As a form of gratitude, the Titans gave their sponsors signed T-shirts during a farewell event at Kenwyn House.
The Titans’ five-day stay in Seychelles was documented by a DStv production crew.
