Platinum Stars’ sales and hospitality manager Goitseona Tlhape is a woman on a mission. Her mission is to see the stands full of supporters adorned in the colours of the club. Tlhape, who joined Dikwena in 2012 as a marketing intern, is keen to give her best in order to help the team off the pitch.  “I work in sales and hospitality department. It has ticketing and I manage Dikwena Lifestyle Emporium, the club’s official store. We sell merchandise and also give supporters information. I came here as an intern in 2012. I have been with the team ever since. My aspirations for this coming season are to see us build a strong support base. We need mores bums on the seats at the stadium. I believe we can get more supporters if we work well together as the club and work with our supporters. We do have supporters that come on daily basis to the shop and are willing to work with the team to grow the support base. We are looking at increasing our support base and get the Dikwena brand out there,” Tlhape tells
Tlhape regularly interacts with supporters. She runs the club’s official store – Dikwena Lifestyle Emporium. While she is set to work hard off the pitch, she is confident that the team coach Peter Butler has assembled will do well this season.
“The team will win. Not qualifying for the top eight last season doesn’t mean that we are out of contention. I have faith that this season we can be in the top three again. We have done it before so we can still do it. I have got faith in our players and the new coach and technical team. I am happy that we have new signings. The supporters have been giving us thumps up. They are giving positive feedback. They are happy.”
Tlhape is responsible for making sure that the players and the supporters look good on the pitch and on the stands. She is also responsible for hospitality packages and ensures that our VIPs get experience like no other –
