The PSL and sponsors MultiChoice have launched the player transition programme. This will help retired players into finding other professions.
One of the biggest issues in football is retired footballers going broke or not having the necessary skills to make a living for themselves post professional football.
There are several stories of ex-players going broke in domestic football. This is because of the lack of financial intelligence.
As a result, they realise they had not saved or invested enough money during their football days, so when they no longer make that money, it becomes a huge issue for them.
This programme will hope to tackle these issues ad create a fruitful future for professional footballers when they permanently hang up their boots.
“Today is proof that what happens when you engage on a matter of national importance with a renowned Model Corporate Citizen.
“Multichoice is today helping the PSL walk the talk. The launch of the Player Transition programme is a significant first step in addressing the plight of professional football players when they retire from their glorious playing days”, PSL Chairman Dr Irvin Khoza said to the media.
MultiChoice Executive Head for Corporate Affairs, Collen Dlamini was also thrilled to introduce this innovation into local football: “MultiChoice Group enjoys a fruitful working relationship with the PSL.
“The player transition programme deepens our commitment to local football through our partnership with the PSL. It is also in keeping with our motto of enriching lives, as through this partnership we are empowering players in a manner that will see them continue being successful well after their playing careers come to an end.” He confirmed.
