SAFA - Safe-Hub

On 14 November 2016 SAFA (South African Football Association) officially launched the Totalsports safe-hub in Alexandra, Johannesburg. This is the fourth safe-hub in the country and the first to be implemented by SAFA Development Agency (SDA). Totalsports are the leading funders in this football development and SDA wants to build a total of 100 safe-hubs over the next ten years.

The facility is based on the same concept as the AmandlaEdu Football Centre in Khayelitsha in Cape Town. It will include an artificial football pitch and youth development centre with solar powered floodlights sponsored by Phillips.

We were only commissioned to timelapse the development of this soccer field when they were already about halfway into the project. SAFA invested wisely into this timelapse camera system as they can re-use it on future projects again and again. The have many more similar projects on the horizon and we are looking forward to be working with them again in the future.
