07 December 2022– The South African senior women’s team continued to reap the rewards of their Women’s Africa Cup of Nations triumph when they were honoured at the Gsport Annual List of Newsmakers on Wednesday.
The Gsport Annual List of Newmakers is an event that was established by Gsport founder Kass Naidoo and it is aimed at closing the visibility gap in women’s sport.
The SASOL-sponsored Banyana Banyanahad a fruitful year after making history in July by clinching their first-ever WAFCON trophy, which some have deemed as the moment that changed the face of women’s sport in the country.
The event was attended by SAFA COO Lydia Monyepao and Banyana Banyana coach Desiree Ellis, who accepted the accolade on behalf of the team.
Mamelodi Sundowns Ladies, who won the Hollywoodbets Super League for the third consecutive season last month, were also amongst those honoured at the event.
