Momentum’s sponsorships

“Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair.”- Nelson Mandela

At Momentum, we are a proud sponsor of sports and are inspired by the feats of sportspersons. That's why we want to see them succeed. Our sports sponsorships are aligned to help our ambassadors and partners by providing them with #AdviceForSuccess and funding that will enable them to achieve their goals and thrive in their chosen fields.

Our sporting ambassadors

Much like success in sport, success in life means tapping into the power of teamwork and creating spaces that allow sportswomen to express their world class ability. This is why we have partnered with our ambassadors to help them excel on their journey to success.

Saray Khumalo

Saray is the first black African woman to reach the summit of Mount Everest in May 2019. She never gave up on her goal. It took 4 attempts before Saray reached the summit of Mount Everest. “It always seems impossible until it’s done” – Nelson Mandela.

These powerful words resonate with Saray who believes that no one gets to the top of the world without taking action. To her breaking barriers means that, instead of settling for the status quo, being resilient and finding a way to move forward was the key to achieving the goal.

Cheslin Kolbe

Cheslin Kolbe

Cheslin Kolbe is a Springbok player who is best known for his speed, agility, power and strength on the field. Despite a challenging background, Cheslin’s desire to prove everyone wrong has fuelled his journey. He has beat the odds proving that the “underdog” can win. Cheslin's Kolbe the modern-day example of how you can accomplish anything you put your mind to, no matter what your physical short beings? may appear to be.

“Don't limit yourself. Many people limit themselves to what they think they can do; you can go as far as your mind lets you. What you believe, remember you can achieve”.

Momentum shatters the barriers that women athletes face

Sponsoring professional women's sporting teams is one of the fastest ways to shatter the many barriers sportswomen are facing. In 2020, women athletes got 4% of the worldwide sports media coverage. Consequently, women still receive only a tiny part of global sponsorship deals. The media can challenge these norms, promoting a balanced range of men's and women's sports and a fair portrayal of sportspeople.

When you watch, the game changes. Momentum wants to take this opportunity to bring awareness to this sponsorship gap and encourage every citizen, potential sponsor, and institution to get behind women's sports and elevate their impact in the world of sport.
