This week, we have an early release, to whet your appetite, as we discuss Banyana Banyana’s brilliant display in winning the 2022 Women’s Africa Cup of Nations.

Banyana returned to the country to a heroes’ welcome on Tuesday morning, and were handed a cheque for R5.8 million by sports minister Nathi Mthethwa. With another R9.2 million promised by Safa, there is plenty of cash coming the way of Banyana’s stars. But is it enough. And are corporate sponsors doing enough to come on board too?

Our panel discusses all these issues and more, so have a listen!
