Nothing dampens the spirits of the Masokolara, the effervescent fans of Bloemfontein Celtic, whose support for their team is cast in stone - win or lose.

Not surprisingly, this never-say-die spirit has drawn a major soccer sponsor which wants the Masokolara to liven up Bafana Bafana's forthcoming matches against the US and Canada. In an unusual gesture, 2 000 Celtic fans will be sponsored to attend the games.

Thankfully, a carnival atmosphere will breathe life into Bafana games again.
