The South African Football Association (Safa) on Friday said it would work to find ways for its total ownership of the Bafana Bafana name to benefit soccer lovers.
Safa ended its long-standing dispute with Stanton Woodrush over the name Bafana Bafana.
The two parties reached an agreement this week which will see Safa paying a sum of R5 million to Woodrush for the rights to the name.
Subsequently, Woodrush will have no interest in the Bafana Bafana name which they owned since 1993.
Currently, the latest Bafana replica jersey will set you back around R900.
Safa Vice President Danny Jordaan said this needs to change.
"Now we are able to decide how best to serve the supporters of Bafana Bafana. We will have an internal discussion first and then see once we have had that discussion, we'll be able to talk to the public to say what it is that we are going to offer," he said.
