More provinces have concluded their provincial trials for the U15 TDS Interprovincial
tournament as the start of the inaugural tournament scheduled for next month (8 July)
SAFA Mpumalanga, Eastern Cape and the North West held trials over the weekend and
squads that will compete against other provinces and a few invited academies for the
U15 Technical Development Scheme (TDS) title will be selected.
This tournament aims to get provinces aligned with the SAFA master plan and ensure
that development is active ahead of the selection of the first group for the U15 national
team, which will fall under the SAFA Academy.
SAFA Mpumalanga held their provincial trials at Themba Sinamela, Nkangala region, on
Saturday (20 May) and will be looking to impress at the highly anticipated tournament.
SAFA Eastern Cape held their trials at the Chris Hani region while SAFA North West
trials were held at Ngaka Modiri Molema region.
“We are extremely excited about this upcoming tournament, and wish that all
stakeholders understand the vision we have for these young kids,” said SAFA Vice
President Linda Zwane.
“Development and youth football are the centres of our Vision 2030, and this
tournament will be one of our first objectives in ensuring that we deliver on the vision.”
SAFA Limpopo is excepted to conclude its trials this week, while the Free State will
have theirs on 27 May. Gauteng will hold its trials on 28 May.
A draw and format will then be communicated in June before the final squads are
released for the July 8 tournament.
