PlayerLink Sports Management Group

Highbury Safika Media is the media partner and majority shareholder of PlayerLink, a sports management company that provides a comprehensive service for professional athletes. The company came about after the realisation that there was no consolidated service available for the management of South African sportsmen and women. PlayerLink provides a comprehensive service addressing the needs of professional athletes, including their financial, marketing, management, commercial, legal and post-career needs.

PlayerLink wants to set the benchmark in the sports management industry through its integrated media partner, knowledge, critical thinking, ethics, integrity, skills and the passion to succeed. The company strives to play a meaningful role in the athlete’s life, both on and off the playing field.
