Supa Strikas is a world-renowned print comic and animated television series, and has a strong presence in Malaysia and the Philippines as well as a huge local fan base. Around 1.4 million copies of the comic are printed each month in 16 countries, and the animated series is broadcast in each of those same countries. In South Africa alone, each episode averages a million views.
The popular story follows the trials and tribulations of 'the world's best football team', represented by a South African team with the name Supa Strikas. 15 other representative teams fill in the blanks to create a high energy, thrilling story line.

Facebook page), it was only a matter of time before the online comic was launched, to meet their fans' growing interest and desire for interactive digital media.
