10 December 2020 – MYSAFA has already become the gold standard for football player registration and verification in Africa. Now, in addition to being the only FIFA-connected football administration system in SA, MYSAFA includes features that help league administrators to follow social distancing guidelines during league preparations.
Traditionally all player registrations have been captured in electronic systems after paper registration forms, ID copies and player photos were dropped off at the league offices. This means 16 or more club officials, often queueing, to deliver hundreds of documents that must be handled by football administrators doing data capture.
MYSAFA’s club self-registration features make this a thing of the past, allowing clubs to upload player details, documents and photos, safely from their home or office. Each submission is then reviewed and approved (or rejected) by the league administrator(s) before registration is complete and a player card can be produced.
SAFA Free State’s respected Provincial Executive Officer, Moremi Klip, was one of the first league administrators to take advantage of the club features for ABC Motsepe League.
“The process is working efficiently, effectively and very fast. All our teams are happy to register themselves because it minimises the risk of travelling and minimises direct physical contact,” said Klip.
In addition, club self-registration expands the capacity of regions and LFAs to register more players than previously possible with a small team and allows clubs direct access to MYSAFA for managing their clubs and, starting in 2021, purchasing products and services via the platform.
