Governance with Club Structures

This paper explores the current status of club football in South Africa in terms of a seven dimension "good governance framework" as proposed by Pedersen. Applying this framework to a high level assessment of club football in South Africa demonstrates multiple gaps and challenges in governance at all levels of club football. Pedersen argues that Club Licensing frameworks, as mandated by FIFA, CAF and SAFA, as well as the NSL, should be rapidly implemented, and ultimately used as a developmental tool to drive football development at the base of the football pyramid.
