Youths’ time to enter running out

2018-04-11 06:01

Young football players in the Northern Cape are encouraged to register for the Ke Yona Team Search.

The closing date is Sunday (15/04).

This talent search initiative has been an integral part of the Nedbank Cup for over five years and run parallel with the football championship.

The talent scouting project is open for aspiring hopefuls aged 18 to 23.

Trials which will also accommodate Northern Cape candidates will be conducted at the Dr R.P. Molemela Stadium in Bloemfontein on Sunday, 29 April.

To register, interested players must dial *120*539662#.

The Ke Yona Team Search is a nationwide talent search programme.

After being scouted by the highly-acclaimed Ke Yona coaches, over 25 previously unknown players have secured professional contracts.

This year, the talent search initiative will also give fans a chance to be part of the action.

They can select which of the final 18 players will be included in the 16 teams of the Premier Soccer League (PSL), South Africa’s major league.

The introduction of an interactive player drafting process is part of the sponsor’s initiative to grow the game of football.

The interactive element will be implemented through a football-specific app, the Nedbank Cup App.

This app offers numerous engagement opportunities for supporters, as well as regular prizes throughout the duration of the Nedbank Cup and the Ke Yona Team Search.
