The excitement around live sport coming back to the fore is at an all-time high as women in sport are securing lucrative deals on both the local and international scene and owning their success on the red carpet.
Over the past month, the gsport Team together with our partners, Momentum, honoured women in sport leading up to a glamorous event which took place on Monday, 31 August 2020.
As we celebrated the achievements on the gsport stage, our South African sportswomen continued to break barriers globally.
A number of Momentum Proteas players earned contracts in the Women’s Big Bash League in Australia and footballers, Zanele Nhlapho and Andisiwe Mgcoyi earned lucrative deals with KFF Mitrovica.
