“For me soccer provides so many emotions, a different feeling every day. I've had the good fortune to take part in major competitions like the Olympics, and winning the World Cup was also unforgettable. We lost in the Olympics and won in the World Cup, and I'll never forget either feeling.” - Ronaldinho

NWU Soccer caters for both male and female participants. We are affiliated with University Sport South Africa (USSA).

Soccer at the NWU is fast setting the record for the most consistent performance at any level of competition it takes part in.

One of the Vaal Triangle Campus soccer success factors is the mutually beneficial relationship with the Kaizer Chiefs Football Club.

Six of the NWU’s registered players hail from the ranks of the Kaizer Chiefs development structures and also represented the Kaizer Chiefs MDC (MultiChoice Diski Challenge) team.

The main aim of the NWU's Soccer Institute is to develop well-rounded individuals who can be future soccer players, coaches and administrators, and simultaneously pursue an academic programme of their choice.
