He was also named the Urban Warrior and U/18 Player of the Year in the same year, which not only highlights his calibre but also emphasizes why he emerged as the top selection in the Under Armour athlete selection process. Secondly, but by no means second in talent, the Under Armour team welcomes Robyn Moodaly; born in East London, but set her sights on the world! She began to play football, as she was growing up, describing it as "being in my genes" which ultimately proved true in fashion as she has since gone on apply her trade for the Under–17 nation women’s squad as well as being a part of the South African selection at the 2010 FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup. She made her debut for the Senior National team aged 16 in January 2011.

Her latest achievement is representing her national side at the 2023 Turkish Women's Cup, where they proved triumphant and walked away as the cup champions. Being a part of the UA team means everything, this is such an amazing brand. It portrays an active lifestyle ,exciting and inspiration personality. It’s a privilege and a honour to be working with UA being the first female athlete in the football industry. I’m grateful and can’t wait to see what the future holds. - Robyn Moodaly As a midfielder, Robyn currently plies her trade for the JVW Football Club in the HollywoodBets Super League. She has been described as having a “soft touch, accurate passing, and the ability to control the game from the centre."
