South Sudan National Football Body Plans To Pay Players

The national football governing body says it is working to ensure that players are offered stipends after every match.

It announced this during a dinner it organized for the players in Juba on Wednesday.

“I am working hard to ensure that you start getting salaries after every game,” said Francis Amin Michael, the President of South Sudan Football Association.

It’s not clear what arrangements the SSFA had put in place to support the needs of the players.

But according policies governing national football teams, players are treated as contractors and are often  rewarded based on their of performance on matches.

This means that if a team wins, the players are rewarded higher than when they draw or lose in a tournament.
