The South African Football Association has taken a giant leap forward in ensuring regular doping tests in the local game!

According to Dr Thulani Ngwenya, who is SAFA’s chief medical officer, both the professional and amateur ranks in Mzansi have been lagging behind for some time in reference to FIFA’s regulation.

The world football governing body has joined forces with the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) to fight substance abuse. In fact, measures to fight drugs have been in place since 1966, with FIFA making frequent testing a requirement. 

But information provided to the media suggests that it has been nearly five years since the South African Institute for Drug-Free Sport (SAIDS) arrived unannounced at a Premier Soccer League match to take urine samples for testing.

It’s all about to change…. The media recently asked SAFA about their recent breakthrough. 

A huge changes are reportedly on the way in South African football both on and off the field.

With Bafana Bafana impressing in their recent qualifiers, seems as if SAFA is finally on the right path.
