30 August 2022 – It has been more than a month since Banyana Banyana won their first-ever Women’s Africa Cup of Nations title in Morocco, but the celebrations have not stopped for the African champions.
Technical sponsors Le Coq Sportif also rolled out the red carpet when they invited the members of the team to one of its shops in Sandton on Tuesday morning. The team was given appreciation gifts and also had a chance to engage and take pictures with supporters and staff members.
Le Coq Sportif Marketing Manager Courtney Williams praised the team for their hard work and what they have done for the nation.
“In sport, especially in football, nobody speaks about the number of times you’ve reached the final, the number of times you have been consistently brilliant at what you are doing, so that little hard work and extra training sessions has all come to this moment where you have given the nation hope. You have given us something to smile about” Williams said.
“This is one of those moments in South African history where people will say ‘Where were you when Banyana Banyana won WAFCON’ and I want to thank you for that. Today is all about us giving a small token of appreciation for what you have done for the nation.”
The SASOL-sponsored Banyana Banyana are currently in camp where they are preparing to take on Brazil in two matches with the first match taking place on 2 September 2022 at Orlando Stadium, and the second match on 05 September 2022 at Moses Mabhida Stadium.
Both matches will kick-off at 18:00pm. Tickets are available online at Ticketpro at R50 across all age groups.
