UNITY THE BLUE EMBODIES THE UNITED SPIRIT
     
   
 

Maritzburg United are delighted to unveil our new club mascot – ‘Unity the Blue’, who will lead the Team of Choice’s supporter base, affectionately known as the Blue Army.

     
 

 

Maritzburg’s supporters are an integral part of the team and the club hopes to cement and build on this relationship with the appointment of our own club mascot while also keeping in line with global trends.


“As club management, we have always acknowledged and appreciated the vital role our supporters have played,” said CEO Younus Kadodia.


“Their unwavering support has become a massive part of who we are as a club. Having that ‘12th’ man in the stands really lifts the players and has undoubtedly contributed to our success over the years.


“We now want to consolidate and build upon the connection between the club and the fan-base with the appointment of Unity the Blue, who will add more fun and excitement to the match-day experience.


“With his background, we felt that he was the perfect person to galvanise the Blue Army, and for him to be the link between the supporters and the club, so that we can further build on our engagement and relationship with the Team of Choice fan-base.”




He certainly does tick all the boxes when it comes to his credentials as a die-hard Team of Choice supporter, and he represents everything the Blue Army stands for.


Unity was raised in a family of Maritzburg United fans and has been supporting the team since boyhood.

Having grown up in the Midlands, he is a small-town boy at heart. While he may come from humble beginnings, he is a big dreamer and embodies the same hopes for his favourite team.

He has been there through the good and bad times and travels the length and breadth of the country to see his favourite team play.

Having grown up watching the team at the Harry Gwala Stadium, he understands the love that kids have for the game and the club.

Unity the Blue will be on hand to welcome the team into the stadium and will then head off to join the fans as leader of the Blue Army. He is a great dancer and loves it when the Blue Army breaks into song.

Team of Choice fans will have the opportunity to meet Unity the Blue in person between 11h30 and 13h30 on Saturday at the official Maritzburg United merchandise kiosk, located in the Liberty Midlands Mall.

Supporters can then look forward to engaging with him as he rallies the troops on Sunday at the Harry Gwala Stadium for the visit of Kaizer Chiefs in what is our last match of the year.
