ISUZU Motors South Africa is pleased to announce its partnership with the South African Women’s Hockey Team as they gear up for the African Hockey Road to Paris 2024 tournament. The highly anticipated tournament, which will be hosted in Pretoria from October 29th to November 5th, will serve as the African Olympic qualifying tournament, and the SA Women’s Hockey Team is determined to secure their place at the 2024 Paris Olympics.
ISUZU Motors South Africa Marketing Executive, Ziphindiwe Ngcobo, says, “We are thrilled to support the South African Women’s Hockey Team on their journey to the 2024 Paris Olympics. Their dedication and core values of passion, pride, unity, and resilience align closely with ISUZU’s own ethos, and we believe this partnership will not only boost the team’s performance but also inspire aspiring female athletes across the country.”
As the reigning champion of the African Olympic qualifying tournament and having qualified for the past five Olympic Games, the SA Women’s Hockey Team is a symbol of excellence and determination. The team is well-prepared to be #BoldBeyondtheField to secure their qualification. Their journey promises to be filled with passion for the sport, pride in their nation, unity within the team, and resilience in the face of fierce competition.
The South African Women’s Hockey Team have consistently demonstrated their passion for the game, pride in representing the nation and unwavering resilience in the face of challenges.
Co-captain of the South African Women’s Hockey Team, Erin Christie, expressed her gratitude for ISUZU’s support: “We are honoured to have ISUZU Motors South Africa as our partner as we embark on this journey to qualify for the 2024 Paris Olympics. I believe that ISUZU will play a massive role in our Olympic journey. As a team, we did not want to go to the games and just participate – we wanted to go there and compete. We want to inspire young female sportswomen and the generations who will wear our shirts after us.”
ISUZU’s commitment to sports in South Africa goes beyond this partnership. It is a proud sponsor of several sporting properties including IRONMAN South Africa, ATC Multisport, the Vodacom Bulls, Bulls Daises, Move The Nation Race and the Algoa FM Big Walk for Cancer.
“We invite South Africa to rally behind the SA Women’s Hockey team as they embark on this journey to fulfill their Olympic dream. The support of the nation will be an additional source of inspiration for the players as they face formidable opponents from across the continent,” ends Ngcobo.
