Stellenbosch & Maties Partner Up
Stellenbosch Football Club and Stellenbosch University have signed a Memorandum of Understanding that will see the two entities collaborate until 2029.
The announcement was made on Monday in Stellenbosch.
The partnership will see Stellenbosch use the University’s Lentelus Football Complex for training for three seasons, and the Danie Craven Stadium for Premier Soccer League matches for nine seasons, all effective from the commencement of the 2021/2022 season.
“Our club’s strategic plan was fast-tracked with our immediate elevation to the PSL in 2019,” CEO Rob Benadie said at the announcement.
“Fortunately, we are based in a town with a rich sport heritage and have the University and other key stakeholders partnering with us to assist our continued growth.
“It is incredible to see how excited the town is about the SFC brand and the prospect of building a home fortress at the iconic Danie Craven Stadium.”
“We hope to build on the incredible history that Maties Rugby has created and continues to generate at this venue,” he continued.
“The Club sincerely thanks Messrs Johann Rupert and Jannie Durand from Remgro and Prof Stan du Plessis, Chief Operating Officer, and his Executives at the University in making this dream a reality.
“I am confident that this partnership is going to be a very exciting and successful journey that will benefit much more than football!”
