The soccer academy under construction at the Umbumbulu FET College is a catalyst that will bring change to football in KwaZulu-Natal.

"The academy, which is a direct result of the soccer World Cup coming to the country, will change the face of football in the province," said Phindile Makwakwa, provincial coordinator of the 2010 Fifa World Cup.

He said the academy would restore the province's former glory of producing stars such as Sibusiso Zuma, Mthofi Khumalo, Samora Khulu and Sizwe Motaung. - Sicelo Dladla
