Welcoming 2023: The Year of Women’s Sport

Happy #WorldCupWednesday!

It feels good to finally be in 2023 after building up to The Year of Women’s Sport over the past few months.

At gsport, we see 2023 as a year when women’s sport is set to be advanced like never before.

South Africa is set to host at least five major world events, including the inaugural ICC Under-19 Women’s T20 World Cup, FIH Indoor Hockey World Cup, Women’s T20 World Cup, World Table Tennis Championships and the Netball World Cup.

Since 7 December 2022, we have been celebrating #WorldCupWednesday: to keep you updated on the preparations for these major showpiece events on our shores and to promote South Africa as World Cup country as the world’s eyes turn to us a global host venue.

Today, we officially launch sales of our 2023: The Year of Women’s Sport limited edition range of t-shirts and caps to celebrate this milestone year. Shop the look now at https://shop.gsport.co.za. Email [email protected] if you need assistance in securing your signature gsport gear.

While South Africa will have that World Cup glow, so will New Zealand and Australia, who host the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup from 20 July to 20 August, where Banyana Banyana are set to represent the Rainbow nation.

What excites me most about 2023: The Year of Women’s Sport initiative is the commitment from the gsport Newsroom (powered by Momentum in partnership with Telkom) to dig deep to find the untold stories that is fueling the success of this massive year for women in sport.

The more we learn, the more we will share with you so you can stay Women’s World Cup savvy throughout 2023!

If you are a woman in sport who wants to get closer to the game, whether it is on the field, on TV or in the boardroom, follow @gsport4girls across social media and be part of a community that genuinely cares about women’s sport.


Many have toiled hard over the years to set up this magical year for women’s sport. My wish is that these individuals, entities and organisations rise up and succeed like never before. It has been a group effort to get us here and now the fun and the real work begins!

Let’s make 2023 the most unforgettable year for women’s sport!
