Millions have been invested into Wits to make them into a force in the PSL. Yet, unlike Mamelodi Sundowns, who often splash out big at the expense of youth development, The Students are also passionate about developing their own young talents.

CEO of Wits, Jose Ferreira, was pleased to see the success of the U17 team which ultimately feeds into the U19 team, thus providing a continuous stream of talented players to the Bidvest Wits PSL team.
