Advances in football medicine research at SSPC

SSPC associated with SSISA has been accredited as a FIFA F-MARC of Medical Excellence.

After a longstanding association with football in South Africa, and specifically Cape Town through the Ajax Cape Town Football Club, we consider ourselves knowledgable in the field of football medicine.

Theo Calligeris, Rashaad Jakoet, Ian Meder are qualified as FIFA F-Marc 11+ Instructors, and have presented a range of workshops in the Cape Town area. Theo Calligeris was also selected to work at the Cape Town Stadium during the FIFA World Cup 2010!
