The DA welcomes the support from the Department of Sport, Arts and Culture for rewarding the historic achievement by the Proteas Women’s cricket team at the recent ICC T20 World Cup.

The team received R 7.5 million in bonuses and an additional R15 million over 3 years towards the development of their professional league.

This funding will go a long way in supporting the team and motivating young and upcoming women in cricket.

The women’s team showed that with the necessary support women in sport can perform alongside the best in the world.

We urge the department to provide more funding across the board for women’s teams.
