The South African Football Players Union (SAFPU) have commenced with the two weeks bio-bubble training camp for out of contract professional players.
The camp taking place in Pretoria is hosting 25 players with the hope of helping them reach their full fitness, as they search for new clubs.
The players arrived on Friday and went through the normal COVID-19 tests protocols before they started with their training on Monday morning.
“We have hosted other camps of this nature before and they were a great success and we look forward to hosting our first ever camp with the Women footballers very soon,” said SAFPU President Thulaganyo Gaoshubelwe.
“SAFPU exists to defend the rights of footballers and this does not mean only those who are in contract. We want to uplift all footballers in South Africa, male and female,” he said.
SAFPU has also revealed that there will be friendly matches organised for the group, with a few Premier Division and GladAfrica Championship clubs.
