The Nedbank Cup is the current name of South Africa’s premier club football (soccer) knockout tournament. While many formats have been used over the years, the tournament has always been based on the idea of giving lower league and amateur teams a chance to compete with clubs from the top league for the cup. The tournament, based on the English FA Cup format, was one of a weak opponent facing a stronger one.
The pride of our cricketing nation lies on the chest of the green and gold. Passion and pride blossom, unwilting in the sun, and standing proud in the wind. These are our committed men and women who wield the willow in defence of our flag. Shoulder to shoulder and back-to-back they take on the world. There is no hesitation in attack. Scant regard for aggression. Respect for competition, admiration for skill and appreciation for integrity.
