Growing South Africans Great . Inspirational video by THE GAME PLAN

18 June 2024, Tuesday



  Great is not something you’re given in life . Great is something you must take in life




Hats off to Mamelodi Sundowns  and the Free State Cheetahs  who stepped up to the plate this past weekend – stepping inside great –  and showing the nation that nothing is impossible when a  team becomes united in mutual trust and purpose .

And it was the manner in which the  Free State team played which spoke so much about what is to come –  sweeping all opponents aside with a new sense of  Faith , Confidence and Belief.

FCB is indeed the Champion’s Cocktail.

We have great players in our country and when great coaches and great leaders step up to support them, everything  becomes possible.

Great happens.  And one can almost sense a new mindset – a new horizon lead by sport.
