    The Art, Philosophy And Science Of Football In South Africa

    The Art, Philosophy And Science Of Football In South Africa explores why South African football evinces so much promise, and yet in relation to many of our peers in Africa and further afield, at both club and national level, we flatter to deceive?

    It is the outcome of an 18-month research project that set out to explore the factors that contribute to success in football and develop a long-term strategy to place South African football on a trajectory to become a successful international competitor.  It is the culmination of eighteen months of literature reviews, interrogation of the science that underpins the sport, and fieldwork.

    The study confirms what is otherwise common knowledge: South Africa needs systematic youth football development. This is as pivotal to football as it is to any other sport; and plodding industry rather than immediate gratification should be the guide.
