Supa M one of Orange Army’s most loyal fans

The FNB Varsity Cup is known for showcasing the thrilling action of the country’s most talented university players on the field. But what about the faithful fans who came out in numbers, filling the stands to cheer their favourite players on game day?  

 


Mhlobowethu “Supa M” Hoyi is one of FNB UJ’s loyal fans who ensures fan participation in the stands. On game days one is guaranteed to see Hoyi wearing a bright orange tutu and wig representing the Orange Army’s identity.  

 

Hoyi says fans play a vital role in the stands as they can boost the players’ morale.  

 

“We must change the atmosphere. We must dominate. We cheer the teams from the stands to make sure that no matter what happens on the field, there is a backup in the stands. We sing until the last whistle. The only thing we tell ourselves is to cheer up because we want our gents and ladies to feel like we are part and parcel of their journey on the field.”  

 

Hoyi started supporting the Orange Army in 2018 and says there has been an increased number of fan turnouts and engagements due to the introduction of activations during half-time.  

 

“These are the things that make fans excited to come onto the field, showcasing their talent and come out with something.”  

 

The Varsity Cup is an unpredictable platform and because of that Hoyi believes UJ still have a chance of a top-four finish this season.  

 

“I hope the fans of UJ will rally behind the boys until the end of the Varsity Cup. It is a relegation year, and we are not going down. We are going to be in the top four, so will rally behind the boys.”
