SAFPU: Go Back To Class

The South African Football Players Union has urged the country’s players to go back to school and finish their studies. 

SAFPU have explained that education is a key part of their programme as an organisation, and they believed that more professional footballers should be positive role models for future generations.

 

A statement said, “The South African Football Players Union would like to encourage all the players to make this year a turn around year by going back to school. We wish that all our members with matric can register with different institutions to further their studies, even those who did not finish matric must go back to school and make sure that they matriculate. Players are role models in the society and this will encourage even the community members to see the importance of education through players.

 

“There are few male players who are studying now than the female players as almost all Banyana Banyana players are studying and some are in possession of Diplomas and Degrees. Just last year, when Banayana Banyana were preparing for the Olympic Games, four of their players graduated with degrees and one with diploma. It is about time that players start to plan their future in an appropriate manner and be responsible.”

 

SAFPU also stated that they want to make sure that footballers remain financially sound once their playing days come to an end, and state that as another reason why they are urging them to make sure that the matriculate.
