CSA have signed a four-year Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with South African Cricketers’ Association (SACA), which deals with the benefits and conditions of employment for all professional cricketers in South Africa.
The MOU involves three separate agreements: the first is the Main Agreement, which deals with regulating player contracts and similar issues; the second is the Commercial Rights Agreement, which seeks to regulate the use of player commercial rights; and the third is the Recognition Agreement, which will deal with the ongoing relationship between CSA and SACA.
“From our side, I would like to emphasise that we remain committed to a revenue share model,” CSA Chief Executive Thabang Moroe commented.
“I am also delighted that we have extended the agreement to cover all professional players in South Africa, including senior provincial players and all our women professionals. There are now 317 players covered by this agreement.
“This document includes for the first time a recognition agreement between ourselves and CSA and also serves the commercial rights necessary for CSA’s commercial partners,” commented SACA Chief Executive Tony Irish. “The agreement is particularly important in the context of where the game is going at international level. We have put the mechanisms and arrangements in place to retain our best players for the Proteas over the next four years.”
