The chairperson of the Sedibeng LOC, Mr Brendon Scholtz, said "We have made good progress to this point with help from our partners, the Vaal University of Technology and the Sedibeng Sports Council, but we are mindful that there is still a lot of work that needs to be done to ensure that the games go off smoothly and without any glitches.”
The new website is aimed at providing information to participants and visitors in the form of:
• Directions to venues by means of interactive Google Maps
• Contact information of coordinators and officials
• Rules for every sporting code including appeals and procedures
• Accommodation in the immediate area surrounding all facilities
• Live results throughout the day
The website is fully responsive and can just as easily be viewed on a desktop computer, a tablet or a smart phone. This means that participants and spectators can view the site from their cellphones or tablets.
