Published: September 12, 2022 << BACK TO NEWS
Thousands of Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality residents filled the Isaac Wolfson Stadium to watch the exciting 2022 HOLLYWOODBETS COSAFA Women's Championship final as Zambia triumphed over Banyana Banyana winning the title.
This comes as soccer fans were allowed to watch the games live during this year's tournament after two years of no access to stadiums due to the COVID-19 regulations.
Zambia scored the winning one goal during extra time.
NMBM Executive Mayor, Cllr Eugene Johnson said the song and cheer from the crowd, young and old, was proof that residents were hungry for sport action and the City was committed to create an enabling environment for such.
"We are proud to have once again delivered an incident free tournament and provided to boost so many of our sectors economically through the revenue that is generated during such events. It has been fulfilling to us to be at the centre of all the action that has a bigger vision to develop women's football. Congratulations to Zambia, hard luck to Banyana we are proud of them despite the loss, it was a tight game."
"This tournament always goes beyond just the pitch action. There are off-pitch programmes that take place over the period of the tournament. This year we visited a destitute New Brighton family on Saturday and laid a helping hand. We look forward to the next two years as we recently signed a three-year contract with COSAFA commencing this year. We want to thank everyone who made this tournament a success, as the Friendly City we look forward to hosting these African nations again," Mayor Johnson said.
Eastern Cape MEC for Sport, Recreation, Arts and Culture, Hon. Nonceba Kontsiwe also congratulated the winners saying: "The Eastern Cape is indeed a sporting destination, this year we are hosting this COSAFA for the fifth time and as such we believe that there is something that is being seen and identified in the Eastern Cape. So we are really proud that we are hosting and we believe that going forward as the sporting destination, we are going to continue hosting COSAFA. We are proud to say within the team about six players are coming from this province.”
