Varsity Football On Par With SAFA League

UWC's Thulani Mkosi has described the level of competition in the Varsity Football tournament as being as competitive as the SAFA Second Division League.
 
The midfielder was a regular at NFD side Milano United where he played in their reserve team in the second division and knows the hard work it takes to perform for a professional club.
 
"The tournament is a very good initiative and very competitive. In fact, it is as competitive as the SAFA Second Division and is also a good motivation for high school learners to come to university," he said.
 
Mkosi said that Varsity Football has provided students with a competitive tournament as well as a chance to be scouted.
 
"The more you play the better your chances are of being scouted. It’s a national tournament and you get to play in different provinces so you can be seen by professional clubs in those provinces," he added.
 
UWC currently occupy sixth position on the log and have an outside chance of making the next phase of the tournament if they win their remaining matches but also have to rely on other results going their way.
 
The intensity of the tournament coupled with other football commitments has been taking its toll on the players and that proved to be the case when they were held to a 1-1 draw by the University of Limpopo.
 
"It was our game to win but we got tired. We play Varsity Football games on Mondays and USSA games on Wednesdays, so it's very demanding and fatigue caught up with us,” he explained.
 
UWC are yet to win claim maximum points at home and will have their work cut out for them in Round Six when they host defending champions UP-Tuks. They have managed to claim two points from the nine that was on offer in their three home matches thus far in the competition.
