A total of 13 interns from various institutions but mostly the University of Johannesburg said goodbye to SAFA staff after completing their 12-month Internship Programme.

The interns, most of who completed Sports Management courses were treated to a luncheon by SAFA CEO Dennis Mumble before SAFA President; Dr Danny Jordaan addressed them and wished them well.

The interns were assigned to various SAFA departments that included Communications, Referees, Support Staff and SAFA Development Agency.

“They got the much-needed on the job experience and this will stand them in good stead as they enter the job market. We will continue to help any of them that need our help but overall, the prospect looks bright for them,” said Dr Jordaan.
