Hollywoodbets Africa : HB South Africa
Hollywoodbets started in 1986 in South Africa as a small publishing company named Winning Form and they handled the publishing and distribution of racecards for South African horse racing. Therefore in the year 2000 it was no surprise they entered the sport betting industry by opening their first betting branch in Argyle Road, Durban. Later this was followed by opening a branch in Springfield Park, Durban, which is the current flagship branch. Hollywoodbets has a significant presence in the KZN sporting scene. They are currently the title sponsors of the provincial Hollywoodbets Dolphins cricket team as well as the Hollywoodbets Kingsmead Stadium, Hollywoodbets Scottsville Racecourse and Hollywoodbets Greyville Racecourse which are all in Durban. They have also recently announced the exciting news that they are the associate sponsorship of the provincial rugby team – The Sharks!
My Community Programme & Social Responsibility
The Hollywoodbets group believes in making a difference in the communities and developing talent. They have helped hundreds of charitable organisations and 250 development sports teams through their My Community Programme. Hollywoodbets also partnered with organisations during the Covid pandemic to provide relief parcels to help feed and protect South Africans in need. Every Hollywoodbets branch in South Africa supports a local charity and local sports teams as part of their social responsibility programme. The community sports teams include soccer, rugby, cricket and other sports. This will carry over into Hollywoodbets Africa for sure.
The rugby twins Akona Ndungane and Odwa Ndungane joined Hollywoodbets as Brand Ambassadors in 2019.
