The GladAfrica Group congratulates Richards Bay Football Club, the 2021/22 champions of the GladAfrica Championship. The team finished at the top of the league displaying their determination, commitment, and tenacity in accomplishing their long-term goal amidst tight competition for the title. 

The crowning of the champions went down to the wire as testimony to the competitive nature of the league in the past season. Over the past year we have witnessed teams battling it out for the top spot. It has been an exciting experience for us to watch the commitment and dedication displayed by teams vying to finish at the top of the table. 

It has been equally gratifying to see teams live to see another day in their battle against each other. This level of commitment is testament to the progressive changes the GladAfrica Championship is going through and the exciting potential that exists in the league. 

The interest and enthusiasm displayed by the clubs, players, and fans alike over the past year has given us motivation to make the GladAfrica Championship the home of competitive and exciting football. 

GladAfrica would like to congratulate all the teams that participated in the league and wish them well for the future. We are looking forward to seeing them compete for top honours again next season. We send our commiserations to the clubs that were unfortunate not to survive promotion. We encourage them to regroup and recommit themselves to working hard in order to fight their way back to the GladAfrica Championship. 

We have built a solid foundation upon which only big and better things will follow. Once again, congratulations to the Richards Bay Football Club and we wish you good luck in the DSTV Premier League.
