Sundowns warn of bogus “ Scouts”
It has come to the attention of the Scouting and Academy department at Mamelodi Sundowns that there are bogus individuals posing as Mamelodi Sundowns Scouts, who are making promises of trials and academy placements at Sundowns for a placement or trial fee.
The club has a scouting and recruitment policy which they follow whereby players can be assessed and come to the club on trial. Please do not pay anybody who promises to place youngsters in the academy.
Sundowns has called on anybody who is approached and offers this service for a fee must be reported to the club. “Action will be taken and charges of fraud laid against such individuals,” said Head of Academy Shawn Bishop.
Sundowns also only advertise their Open trials on the Mamelodi Sundowns website and in reputable publications.
