South Africa has sent a 187 strong member team to participate in the 2014 Commonwealth.
Sporting events have always served to unite the country as was the case during the 2010 FIFA World Cup, the 2012 Olympics and the 2013 Orange Africa Cup of Nations and the recently held African Championship of Nations.
Minister of Communication Faith Muthambi said:“Government is confident that the nation will support our men and women as they strive for gold at the 20th Commonwealth Games.
The games will serve to further unite the nation in the year that we celebrate 20 Years of Freedom”.
Government is convinced that they will represent our nation’s values of democracy, equality and respect for all.
As such, South Africans abroad are invited to show their support for Team SA by visiting the Ekhaya, a hospitality centre that is a home away from home.
Team South Africa won 33 medals in the last Commonwealth Games; and is looking to match and exceed its previous record.
The games are live from DSTV and SABC channels daily from 10am and 10pm.
