  • More on the Let’s Play initiative:

Over time, SuperSport has evolved as the quintessential sporting authority.

With such a strong influence within the South African market, SuperSport has been perfectly poised to harness this power and rally the public and corporates to make a difference in society.

SuperSport identified issues severely inhibiting the development of children through skills learned by playing, physical education and sport – all of which are imperative to the holistic development of young people.

It was from this insight that Let’s Play was born in November 2005, with the aim of elevating awareness of our social situation, and encoura­ging play, activity and sport in schools.
