Women’s Football in the Spotlight at SAFA

SAFA is to embark on a major overhaul, SAFA President Dr. Danny Jordaan, announced after a three-day Lekgotla of NEC members.

He said that the lekgotla had acknowledged that Women’s football has not been receiving the attention it deserved.

“We will be working harder to identify and develop promising young women to help them achieve their full potential,” he said.

Jordaan said that the lekgotla had decided on several steps to ensure the success of the programme.

The Under-19 Women’s tournament will take place between August 4 and August 9 in Modimolle, Limpopo.

SAFA intends to create footballing academies in all nine provinces.  “We are able to do this with the co-operation of government at all levels,” said Jordaan. “The first of these academies is already established in Kwa-Zulu Natal.”
