Ahead of the Varsity Football kickoff, the UJ Women’s and UJ Men’s captains joined the “RogerGoodeShow” on 5FM, before joining the launch on the 17th of July.

The Varsity Football captains received their ceremonial pennants at the Varsity Football launch at the UJ Soweto Campus.

Varsity football will be returning for its 7th edition of action, where teams will go head-to-head in a bid to savour the victory with one best team which will be left standing.

UP-tuks have made their mark as the team to beat and best team in the history of varsity football, claiming three titles.

To date, 16 teams have played Varsity Football and now we prepare for the eight teams, nine rounds of action packed football, with fans cheering on the team to beat.

WOMEN’S varsity basket ball to debut this year

Published

on

Basket ball, a sport not that familiar on South African grounds to make it’s debut this year. This time around it’ll be women holding it down on varsity courts.

Wits Women’s captain Danja Lunnemann sees the potential of varsity basket to grow and develop basket ball in South Africa as well as women’s basketball within the country.

“Varsity Basketball is such a great platform for women to showoff their talent in never-ending fight to have women up there too at the same time. I’m just glad the women’s Varsity Basketball league had to wait only one year after the first ever men’s competition. We’re so excited to show off our talent and play the sport we love”, Lunnemann said.

Lunnemann said further said that, “Varsity ball is important because it adds extra growth to the development of basketball in South Africa generally. Varsity Basketball will show South Africa that there’s more talent out there. This is a great stepping stone to grow basketball in South Africa.”

Broadening the sports horizon is very important and to see how inclusive sports has become over the years, women are now given a platform to represent women in sports within South Africa.
