30 May 2018 – Day two of the SAFA Provincial Technical Officers (PTOs) induction workshop saw various presentations meant to equip the provincial representatives.
They were inducted on matters pertaining to the national teams, schools football and provincial leagues.
SAFA’s Chief Executive Officer Dennis Mumble said the appointment of the PTOs was a progressive step for the Association in decentralising the workload.
“This appointment is a huge relief and I am happy to inform you that you have a significant role to play in the provinces. It is the responsibility of the PTOs to ensure that all Regions are functioning, and that football is running smoothly,” said Mumble.
The SAFA CEO said it was the prerogative of the PTOs to ensure that all provinces are on the same page with regards to football programmes and development.
“As a PTO, you need to be the encyclopedia of your province and be able to give us all information at the Head office with regards to Competition Structures, Coaching Development, Player identification and development amongst many other issues within your areas, “ added Mumble.
The induction workshop of the nine male and nine female provincial representatives will conclude on Thursday, 31 May 2018. Thereafter, the PTOs will be ready to get the ball rolling in their respective provinces.
