17 May 2023 – The South African Football Association (SAFA) and Castle Lager have extended their long-time partnership for a further three years.

Castle Lager have been sponsors of the South African men’s senior national team for more than three decades and the two parties are happy that the Africa Cup of Nations-bound Bafana Bafana will continue to have this backing in the coming years.

“SAFA and Castle Lager’s long-standing partnership is steeped in football tradition and this renewal  is a win-win situation for both parties. This is one of the most enduring partnerships in sport  and the next three years will be an exciting new  chapter of this relationship,” said new SAFA CEO Lydia Monyepao.

“As an effort to keep driving South Africa forward, we are proud and are committed to ensuring the growth of national sports through our partnerships. This is how we grow our business responsibly and create a lasting impact in the communities we operate in. Cheers to the future,” said Vaughan Croeser, Vice-President of Marketing, SAB.

The Africa Cup of Nations will be held in Côte d’Ivoire in January next year and Bafana Bafana qualified after beating Liberia 2-1 in Monrovia on 28 March 2023.
