The Citizen launches Phakaaathi as weekly newspaper

From hybrid to weekly standalone
The Citizen has announced that Phakaaathi will no longer be published as a hybrid newspaper. From Tuesday, 1 March 2016, it will be a standalone, weekly soccer newspaper.

Phakaaathi will be available every Tuesday in stores and from street sellers across Gauteng and most other provinces, excluding Eastern and Western Cape. The weekly soccer newspaper will retail at R2,70 and remain on-shelf in stores for a week until the following Monday.

Well-known sports writer and Phakaaathi editor, Jonty Mark: “We are really excited to launch Phakaaathi as a standalone weekly soccer newspaper from March 1. We hope to reward our loyal readers with the most informative, passionate and fun-to-read soccer newspaper on the market.”

Sixteen pages bursting with soccer news
