Historical institution Wilberforce College has joined forces with Sebokeng-based soccer club Sailor FC.

The college adopted the team and the merger is said to have been signed and sealed late last month.
The merger will see the team being housed at the institution premises and the players will benefit through educational courses offered by the college.

Tieho Mofokeng representing Wilberforce College said, “Sailor FC approached us about a possible merger and since we didn’t have a soccer team at the college we thought it would be wise to accept their proposal. We love sports and this is a blessing for both parties”

The name Sailor FC will cease to exist and will be known as Wilberforce FC.

“We have set over 200 beds which will accommodate teams that are travelling from far, and Sports Management and Information Technology (IT) courses would be made available for the development of the players as we believe education and sport will guarantee them a better future,” Mofokeng added.
