Jere lauds SAFA’s anti age-cheating system

The Zifa delegation which was in South Africa on an exchange programme was impressed with SAFA’s MYSAFA Player Registration & Competitions Management system.

The system was launched in February 2017 and is used to curb age-cheating in football. It’s linked to the department of home affairs, making it very difficult for players and clubs to cheat. Over 205 000 footballers have so far been registered in South Africa alone.

The delegation comprising of heads of referees, development as well as the Zimbabwe Premier League was taken through the three different aspects of MYSAFA which include player registration, competition management and the public site.

Chairman of the Zimbabwe Premier Soccer League, Farai Jere lauded the system saying that it would go a long way in curbing age cheating.

“Age-cheating has held back the development of football on our continent for years and this is something we have struggled to solve. Through this unique system, I strongly believe we can curb this scourge of age-cheating and improve the rate of player identification and development” Jere told SAFA website.

The Zimbabwe delegation returned home on Saturday after ending the week-long visit the previous day.
