AmaZulu FC have continued to work on the corporate side of the club during the international break.
Usuthu launched a business College over the weekend where players and technical team members were given time to study.
After celebrating their 89th birthday last month, the KwaZulu Natal side have launched AmaZulu Business College in an attempt to prepare their players for life after football.
“The AmaZulu Business College (ABC) is spearheaded by Manqoba Zungu, with the backing of club CEO Sine Zungu,” read the statement.
“Players will receive certified graduate training in entrepreneurship and business management.”
In attendance for the launch were Bafana Bafana legend Lucas Radebe and former Usuthu defender, Mbulelo Mabizela who were also offering advice to players alongside coach Benni McCarthy.
The inaugural session was attended by the players, technical team and staff. The aim was inspire their current crop of players and impart to them the necessary skills to become future-focused business leaders, according to the club CEO.
The initiative is the first of its kind in the Premier Soccer League, where players are given entrepreneur skills by the club on its own.
Since the Zungu family took over the ownership of the club, there has been action in both the club as an entity and team structure on the field, which has brought more attention to the name AmaZulu FC.
