South Africa has some of the most ardent soccer fans in the world – and rather than focus on the players, Nedbank decided to pay tribute to the millions of fans who week after week made the game exciting with their passion, creativity and energy during the Nedbank Cup.

The Football Fan Couture Contest saw three superfans from Kaizer Chiefs, Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns battle it out for top honours.

David Tlale was assigned to take care of the Amakhosi faithful alongside superfan Alfred Baloyi, while Craig Jacobs tended to the Buccaneers with fanatic Eugene Khoza (not the comedian) and Anisa Mpungwane took on Amasandawana with Lizzy Matseke.

Tlale and Baloyi emerged victorious according to the votes of invited guests, celebrities and members of the media. In true Tlale style, he adorned Baloyi with a magistrate’s gown, capped off with an elaborate makarapa.
