The goals of the new SAFA leadership have been defined and mapped out in a plan called Vision 2022

Vision 2022 is a fundamental rebuilding of the structures of SAFA at all levels to create the conditions that will bring about the sustained international success of our national teams.

We have set our sights on a long-term development plan to achieve the goal of always being in the top 3 of the African rankings, and in the top 20 of the World rankings.

10% of the South African population must play football. Therefore, we need to redouble our efforts to:

  • Launch a vibrant schools football programme;
  • Strengthen women’s football significantly.
