The increase in appropriations – from R.25 million to R90 million per year (in addition to Springbok contracts and match fees) – was approved last week by the General Council as part of the 2016 saru budget. The new regulations guarantee all professional South African rugby players the collective image rights of their employers. This means that the 14 provincial unions – as well as the mother`s body – can use the collective images of their players mandated in marketing and performance for sponsors after these rights have been guaranteed by MyPlayers, the official organization of professional rugby players. MyPlayers will manage the distribution of revenue to players in different ways, making South Africa a more convenient option to ensure their professional trade. Keeping our players in the country has always been a challenge, which has been compounded by the weakness of the edge, » said Jurie Roux, CEO of Saru. This new agreement we have with the players` organization is part of the effort to get the skills available for the game. This meant a reorientation of budget planning, but we are convinced that it is a wise investment for the benefit of South African players and the game in this country. MyPlayers said distribution to players would be heavily focused on player initiatives such as career development and financial security. The foundation stone for this agreement was laid in 2009, when an agreement was reached to pay national players for the exploitation of their collective commercial rights, » said Eugene Henning, Managing Director of MyPlayers. This new agreement will be extended to all professional players in South Africa, while additional arrangements will be made for the collective interests of the players. Henning explained how this will benefit the players. This is an important step to ensure that professional players are well supervised in an environment that is now much safer, so they can explore the options that prepare them for life after rugby, » he said. It allows us to greatly expand our offer by investing in a targeted way in the development and well-being of players, life after rugby, financial well-being and commercial attractiveness. The agreement will enter into force on January 1, 2016 for a five-year period. « We are working on a new model of contract for this purpose, which we hope to have finalized by the end of April, in agreement with Sarpa and the provincial unions. » We are also present at the International Rugby Players Board.
