Hillbrow kicks off World Cup on a brand new football pitch

JHC congratulates Madulammoho Housing Association on its latest development - the Orange Cruyff Court, a high rated football pitch which opened to the public on 10 June 2010. The Orange Cruyff Court is a generous gift from the Netherlands National Football Team, in association with the Dutch Embassy and the Cruyff Foundation. Situated on 311 Smit Street in Hillbrow, the Court is opening to the Hillbrow community through a series of events, starting with a play-off between the Netherlands National Football Team and the children of Hillbrow in a mini five-a-side tournament. The new football Court will also be in use throughout the world cup for the viewing of South Africa and Netherlands matches. The Court will add to the two recreational spaces the JDA has build in the Ekhaya Neighborhood Area. These facilities contribute to community building and making our communities healthier. Madulammoho Housing Association has worked with JHC on various projects including the Ekhaya Neighbourhood programmes, where a group of building owners come together to make Hillbrow a better place.
