JOHANNESBURG – SA Football Association president Danny Jordaan is sympathetic to the general outcry about the disparities in pay between Bafana Bafana and Banyana Banyana.
Jordaan has urged corporate SA to come on board to help them change the status quo.
Following Banyana’s qualification for their maiden World Cup, courtesy of their reaching the Women’s African Nations Cup final in Ghana, there has been a huge outcry about the fact that the women’s senior national team earn way less than their male counterparts.
Jordaan acknowledged this prior to his departure for Ghana where he will be at the final between Banyana and Nigeria’s Super Falcons.
“We agree that Banyana must be paid better,” he said. “But we are restrained because the amount of sponsorships we get for Banyana is less than what we get for Bafana. We would really appreciate it if corporate SA came on board and helped.”
