Flag zaMade in South Africa

Follow the lives of six women involved with South African sporting greats in Sports Wives. All the episodes are streaming.

Sports Wives, a reality show that gives you a front-row seat into the lives of the wives, girlfriends and exes of South Africa’s sporting greats.

Follow banking app manager and mother of two Bomzi September, who is married to ex-footballer Thabo September, now second assistant coach at his old team SuperSport United; sports manager, masseuse and lecturer Christa Kgamphe-Jane, married to Banyana Banyana star Refiloe Jane; entrepreneur and mother Clarrisa Manaças, who was in a 12-year relationship with Springbok and Vodacom Bulls rugby player Lionel Mapoe; Yummy Mummy Apparel owner Dipuo Maloi, who has two baby daddies who play soccer: Andile Jali, and Lantshene Phalane, who are teammates at Moroka Swallows; Tsholo Makgalemele-Mbane from Tembisa, a stay-at-home wife who is married to Banyana Banyana player Bambanani Mbane; and shore excursion officer Sisanda Cetyiwe, who has a baby with Kennedy Mwene, Zambia’s most capped football player. 

“It was important for us to ensure that the first season of Sports Wives is as inclusive and relatable as possible,” says Nonhlanhla Dhlamini, executive producer and creator of the show. “We were deliberate in also including wives, partners and exes of professional athletes from the LGBTQIA+ community, athletes who are oftentimes neglected by the general media regardless of their outstanding performance at national and international level.”

All the episodes are now streaming on Showmax.
