showcase your talent but enables you to make friends, it builds character and gives you opportunities outside of sport. I definitely wouldn’t be where I am today without football. I urge all young girls to consider taking up football. #Limitless is an immensely exciting prospect from Sasol and SAFA, it mirrors all of my beliefs around football and I can’t wait to see its impact in the future.”
Included in the profiling, will be numerous Banyana Banyana players, in the aim of positioning them in order to give young girls people to look up to and aspire to. Additionally, Sasol and SAFA will be giving Banyana Banyana players the opportunity to grow personally when they launch the #Limitless internship programme. The programme will initially offer two players the opportunity to gain valuable work experience at Sasol, SAFA and leading sports marketing agency, Levergy.
Fran Hilton-Smith, Assistant Technical Director at SAFA added, “Banyana Banyana are currently one of the top performing national teams in South Africa and we continue to see growth in the Sasol League. We urge all South Africans to show their backing for women’s football and to give our players the support they deserve. #Limitless is definitely a step in the right direction in achieving greater exposure for the game. We look forward to seeing what we will achieve in this regard together with Sasol.”
Limitless is designed to use football as a positive catalyst in changing perceptions and behaviours for positive outcomes. Whether it be young girls learning life lessons through sport or a serious footballer that has her eye on a professional contract or playing at a World Cup.
