On Wednesday 5 July, the city of George was graced with the presence of the long-awaited

Vitality Netball World Cup trophy. Litsatsi together with our very own Daantjie kat and Georgie,  showed the crowd how to bring gees to the George fans by illustrating how to #Putyourhandsup in support of our own Spar Proteas netball team.

Litsatsi the Netball Meerkat Mascots’ name means “Sun” to honour our bright future. Her colourful outfit covered with South African beads represents our rich culture.

The trophy has been traveling around the country bringing awareness and celebrating in the pride of South Africa, being the first African country to host the NETBALL WORLD CUP.

The Netball World Cup kicks off on 28 July at the CTICC in Cape Town. George residents will be able to share in the experience at the Fan Park hosted at the Rosemore stadium from the 28  July 2023  – where live games will be broadcast on a big screen.
