Durban, 26 February 2021: For the Cell C Sharks vs. Tafel Lager Griquas match and the duration of the preparation fixtures, our Cell C Sharks players will be honouring the frontline workers of our country on our match playing jerseys. The hashtag #FrontlineFighters will feature on the back of our playing jerseys as we salute these selfless heroes. This is a small gesture of our appreciation for their tireless efforts in saving lives and fighting this pandemic.
The Cell C Sharks place great emphasis on deep values that reflect the importance of community and the associated spirit that drives a message of unity and hope. Making a difference in the lives of others has been a powerful driving force within our franchise and our players acknowledge the sacrifices of our communities and their hardwork that should never be taken for granted.
Cell C Sharks wing, Sbu Nkosi stated: “Playing with our community in our hearts and minds represents our DNA. We understand that we are nothing without our fans and the communities that we represent, and it is fitting that we recognise the brave people of our country, who fight every single day to make a huge difference during this challenging period in our history.”
Over the last few weeks, members of our team have visited local hospitals in and around Durban to show our support and gratitude for our front-line workers, that are facing the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic. Our appreciation pales in comparison to the achievements of these wonderful men and women who do so much, but in our small way, we want to pay tribute to them.
