The process of registration was officially launched in March on Inqaku.com and we have seen a steady increase in the registrations of schools as well as individual players. There has been an improvement on the registration website where assistance can be provided for those schools who are struggling to register online. For help or assistance contact Romeo Bantu at Inqaku.
We encourage all SAFA Regions and LFAs to ensure that the schools in their areas are registered as soon as possible.
