GameOn! Launch

The anticipated GameOn launch took place on September, 17th at 6pm at Greyville Convention Centre. There were approximately 500 people who attended this remarkable event.  It was a great evening and the start to an exciting new journey!

For those of you who weren’t able to join us at the launch, here’s a basic breakdown of what GameOn is all about. The GameOn! Bank Card is unique because it enables cardholders to earn rewards and loyalty points whilst supporting sports development at both a local and a regional level. The Bank Card is a prepaid MasterCard which can be used to make purchases throughout South Africa, and with every purchase the shopper can receive rewards in the form of cash-back and shopping points, whilst a certain amount, called friendship bonus, is given to your sporting body, or learner’s investment fund and educational institution. It can be used at all retailers, enabling you to perform your regular shopping whilst receiving rewards and supporting your school or sporting code.


The night of the launch commenced with free welcome drinks and food. Peppers & Pans and Eat Greek Caterers offered a variety of delicious meals and snacks from Curry and Rice to Seafood, Dessert and a whole lot more. Both caterers did a spectacular job.  Lots of fun was had with John Allan as the founder and host of GameOn. John shared his vision with an informative presentation and video.

Later in the evening, a panel of South African Rugby Legends, namely: John Mitchell, John Plumtree, Dick Muir, Mark Andrews, and Gary Teichmann hosted by Darren Scott shared their predictions of the 2015 Rugby World Cup on stage. A number of sporting celebrities attended the launch which include; Andre Joubert, Rod Blew, Jeremy Thompson, John Slade, Brent Russell, Steve Atherton as well as the well-known former Springbok Rugby coach, Ian Mcintosh.

Aaron Mcilroy then graced us with his presence, and as per usual he had the crowd in hysterics. To end off the evening, the following prizes were given away: 6 Box Tickets for a Sharks Rugby Game, a Cruise for 20 people on the Spirit of eLan Charter, and a weekend away to Sierra – Family Adventure Resort for 6 people.

The main sponsors of GameOn are eLan Property Group, Van Dyk, KIA, Cell C, Liberty, Lemon Wellness and Lyoness.
