I went to the ice rink in Cape Town back in 2011. With such a massive population of wealthy European-descended individuals, I'm shocked that hockey isn't bigger in South Africa (or Namibia for that matter). I know it's all about the Springboks, Bafana Bafana and the Proteas, but the ice hockey team should be better than it is. I guess the climate doesn't allow for it. Heck, they were even hosting the WC div III just around the time I visited, so there must be some casual interest amongst people.
