Spar Proteas captain, Bongi Msomi, will be the official athlete ambassador for the African region as World Netball made the announcement on Tuesday, 5 October 2021.

World Netball President, Liz Nicholl, says Msomi’s off-the-court attitude is what makes her such an important role model in the sport.

“Not only is Bongi an incredible athlete who has brought joy to netball fans everywhere through her dynamic playing style, off the court her commitment to raising the profile of the sport and using netball as a vehicle to empower and educate young women and girls is extraordinary.

The announcement comes ahead of the 2023 Netball World Cup to be hosted in Cape Town, South Africa.

“With the Netball World Cup coming to South Africa in just over two years’ time, Bongi is the perfect person to help us highlight and inspire growth in netball throughout Africa as we head towards this landmark tournament.” – World Netball President, Liz Nicholl

Msomi, 33, expressed her gratitude towards World Netball on the esteemed appointment.

“Netball has completely changed my life and given me experiences I could never even have dreamt of as a young girl.

“I am grateful to the people who have paved the way for me, so I am honoured that I will be able to inspire other women and girls and be a role model to them through my position as a World Netball ambassador.”
