The Philly’s Games were established in 1992 and the birth of these games brought a peaceful ending to the
continuous political fights amongst two sections in the community of Tembisa.
Initially, there were only two teams who participated, however the response was great and the games ended up
being a successful annual event. The games have been in existence for 28 going on 29 years, they have now created
a huge fan base within the community of Tembisa and greater Ekurhuleni.
The Philly’s Games now attract crowds of more than 13 000 spectators daily, but this year are being played behind closed doors because of Covid-19 restrictions and hosts professional players in huge numbers. Most importantly the Games plough back into the community of Tembisa by either donating money or giving gifts to the homeless and HIV homes, they also donate kits to schools in the community.
This 9-day off-season tournament began on the 20th and end on the 30th of December 2020, but breaks between
the 25th and the 26th.
The tournament has been a phenomenon in Tembisa for the past 28 years and keeps growing from year to year
and has now created a brand within the community, Gauteng and South Africa.
