SAFA Outlook For 2018

SAFA looks ahead to 2018

By Mkhize - Jan 01, 2018 09:59 AM

The South African Football Association has informed the Siya Crew that 2018 will be an important year for South African Football.

SAFA has indicated that the priority with regards to the men's senior national team, Bafana Bafana is to keep the squad as active as possible this despite the team's failure to qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

"The technical team will engage with the National Executive to develop a way forward for Bafana," SAFA's Communications Head Dominic Chimhavi told the Crew.

"However our focus will also be on helping both the women's U-20 national team Basetsana and the U-17s Bantwana to qualify and compete competitively at the U-20 and U-17 Women's FIFA World Cups."

"Both these teams have done very well in 2017 and we hope they continue representing the country well in 2018," added Chimhavi.

The SAFA Communications man further went on to affirm that current Bafana head coach Stuart Baxter had the full backing of SAFA heading into the new year.

"The coach continues to work hard and the FA believes in his vision. We thank all soccer loving South Africans for standing behind us and we continue to rely on that support heading into 2018," concluded Chimhavi.

Soccer Laduma reported previously that Baxter was scheduled to meet with the FA to discuss Bafana's schedule for 2018.
