SuperSport United Partner Tshwane University of Technology to Launch TUT Matsatsantsa Ladies FC

In a groundbreaking move for women’s football, SuperSport United is thrilled to announce its partnership with Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) in the creation of the TUT Matsatsantsa Ladies FC, affectionately known as #RedArmy. This historic merger marks a significant moment in the world of sports and academia, as the two entities come together to empower women in football.

The partnership solidifies a long-standing relationship between SuperSport United and Tshwane University of Technology, with the club playing all the 2023/24 first team and DStv Diski Challenge (DDC) matches at the University. The move not only strengthens the bond between sports and education but also elevates the presence of women’s football within the university community.

TUT Ladies FC has already carved a remarkable path in women’s football, competing in the SAFA National Women’s League: Hollywoodbets Super League. Since its inception in the 2019-2020 season, the team has consistently performed at a high level, securing an impressive second position. Additionally, their domination in the Varsity Football competition has earned them six consecutive championships from 2014 to 2019, further establishing their prowess in the sport.

With the unveiling of the TUT Matsatsantsa Ladies FC team, technology partner Huawei Technologies adds its voice to the celebration of women’s football. Huawei South Africa introduced the highly anticipated next generation series of HUAWEI Wearables, including the HUAWEI WATCH 4, HUAWEI WATCH GT 3 SE, HUAWEI WATCH Fit SE, and the HUAWEI Band 8. The HUAWEI WATCH FIT SE, equipped with cutting-edge technology and performance, aims to empower the footballers with the tools for a healthier, more connected, and immersive life.

SuperSport United CEO, Stanley Matthews, expresses his excitement about this historic moment, reflecting on the club’s long-standing association with TUT. This partnership marks their maiden voyage into women’s football, and the club is proud to embark on this journey with TUT Matsatsantsa Ladies FC.

Dr. Shadrack Nthangeni, Tshwane University of Technology’s Executive Director for SAED, echoes the excitement and pride about the momentous partnership. For the university, this alliance is a strategic step towards producing future-ready graduates who excel in both sports and academics. Dr. Nthangeni emphasizes the vital role of women’s football, not only locally but also on a global scale, as a means of empowering women to fulfill their potential both on the field and in society.

The birth of TUT Matsatsantsa Ladies FC is a remarkable milestone in the history of women’s football, and the collaboration between SuperSport United and Tshwane University of Technology sets a powerful precedent for promoting women’s sports and education hand in hand. The #RedArmy is poised to make its mark and inspire a new generation of women footballers to reach for greatness both on and off the field.
