In a world where the turf is tough and the stakes are high, Sne Modise (Jo-anne Reyneke) is a symbol of resilience and ambition in a male-dominated soccer empire.

Battling the storm caused by sudden changes in her father, Washington's (Sello Maake ka-Ncube) life, Sne is thrown into a series of challenges, love and betrayal.

While battling the intense drama, as the underdog, Sne stands at the top, determined to challenge the gender norms and lead the Soshanguve Giants FC to success.

But the question remains: Can she come out on top in an arena where the rules of the game are constantly changing?

Champions is produced by Tshedza Pictures, created by Phathutshedzo Makwarela and Gwydion Beynon, who are also the executive producers.

Candice Tennant is also an executive producer, as well as the series producer.

The head writer is Thato Dipholo, with storyliners Shitshembiso Mabasa, Brigette Madiba and Florence Mashadi Rapeu.

The director is Krijay Govender and the composer of the original score is Brendan Jury.

The title sequence track is called Ke Nako Yaka, written by KB Motsilanyane and Bonga Percy Vilakazi, with music by S'phamandla "MarazA" Mhlongo. The song is performed by KB Motsilanyane.
