Durban will host the inaugural Municipal Football Partnership Forum on 16 December 2015 on the same day the city is hosting the sold-out Telkom Knockout final between PSL giants Mamelodi Sundowns and Kaizer Chiefs at the Moses Madhiba stadium.

The Forum will create a platform for municipalities and other stakeholders to debate local government’s mandate under the National Sports & Recreation Plan (NSRP) wherein they are guided to create an “enabling environment” for residents to participate in recreational and mass participation sports events. Its hosted against the backdrop of the transformation debate raging in local sports and it will discuss the role of all stakeholders involved in grassroots football development. The Forum will exchange knowledge and ideas on how to foster much needed cooperation between the custodians of the sport and that of community resources.

Football is the one sport that is easily played on any surface in our communities and there is a greater need, not only to improve football pitches, but also to forge closer cooperation between the likes of SAFA, the PSL, Clubs, Municipalities, Schools, Sponsors and other development agencies who have all been invited to participate in the Forum.

The key topics to be debated at the Forum will focus on aspects like grass roots football development programmes, the future of South African football, the role of the PSL clubs and sponsors in developing the game, the economic value of football events and building capacity for football administrators.
