PSL & MultiChoice Launch New Programme

The Premier Soccer League (PSL) and MultiChoice and have officially launched the PSL Player Transition Programme on Monday at the Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS) in Johannesburg.

The programme is aimed at helping players to make the transition to a life after a professional football career, and to better equip them for post retirement.

The statement states that sixty-four current PSL players have already been enrolled for a six-month course which will run virtually, with four core modules and two electives as well as activities for the players.

PSL Chairman, Dr. Irvin Khoza, who was part of the launch, has also highlighted reasons of creating the programme.

“The field of play is the best place to start a career. It involves implementation of strategies in competitive and stressful circumstances. The visibility that the players receive whilst playing in the PSL gives them a head start,” Dr. Khoza said in a statement.

“GIBS brings about the formal part that reorientates the player and the public from viewing the player through the singular lens of football. The players will leave the course equipped and qualified to use their football experience in other fields of the market, economy, and society.”
