ZAC is the mascot for both the Proteas men and women’s teams. His name embodies his proud heritage - ZA Cricket. His head and tail are crowned with the King Protea, South Africa’s national flower.
It is said, that he lost his voice as cub when he watched Allan Donald being run out at the 1999 ICC Cricket World Cup. From that point on it was his life’s mission to give the Proteas all the support he could.
In 2012 he was chosen as the official mascot.
ZAC is an entertainer at heart. Whether it be at a stadium or at an event, he always puts on a show to do his bit to inspire the crowd and the team.
ZAC is multi-talented, and although cricket is his speciality, he can pretty much do anything. Some of his skills include: dancing, gymnastics, braaing, healthy living and handling pyrotechnics.
You’ll spot him at every home Proteas game as he never wants to leave Africa. He’s available for school visits and parties.
