meet al - al paca

Al Paca joined Sportsnation in 2021 as our official mascot and we could not have asked for anyone better than him. He starts his day by keeping up with his rugby legends, training and keeping in tip top shape. I mean, have you seen his muscles? He also makes sure to take care of himself, you know, since he no longer needs to take a dip in a river.

He is the perfect balance between professional and witty, a sneaky little bugger but also kind and charming. You need to keep your eye on him because he is sure to surprise you occasionally. Al is the biggest Sports FANatic and has many Facebook friends following him to see where his next adventure with Sportnation will be. Al likes to call his fellow sport Fanatic friends, Alpacaneers.

Al Paca plays a big role in our team, he loves to come hang out at the office with us and see what he can help with. Sometimes he can get a bit sidetracked and distracts the team or on hot days, he likes to graze for snacks chill out on the couch and read about the Rugby World Cup 2023 that is just around the corner. We always catch him reading about himself in there as well.

Al Paca got interested in South Africa after meeting Malusi in a German bar in London years ago, and since he had cousins in the Magaliesberg area, he figured he would come see what the fuss was all about. He decided to stick around and his favorite thing to do now is tanning a mielie on the braai and hanging out with his new South African family.

He is the most passionate, fierce, and fun mascot that you will ever meet. Always ready to recruit new Alpacaneers and challenge them to have fun with him. He likes to show off his skills at kicking a rugby ball, but we often encourage him to stick to football. He is the biggest Springbok supporter and loves game day. He also loves to watch the F1 on Sundays and his biggest dream is to one day drive a racing car. 

Al likes to end off his day with an ice-cold beer, reminiscing with the team about all the adventures they have had since he accepted Malusi’s offer in London to officially join our herd.

Al is our Travel Mascot.

He would love to meet you on your next Sportsnation Travel Adventure.
