16 August 2017 – We continue celebrating and recognizing the women that play a huge role in the daily operations of the South African Football Association (SAFA).
Ms MAPULE MOGANE – EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT TO THE CEO/ MANAGER: ANTI DOPING
I joined SAFA in 2011 after delivering the best ever FIFA World Cup as a Medical Co-ordinator and Anti- doping Manager in 2010.
I fell in love with football back in University when I joined the varsity football team.
I am responsible for the day to day running of the CEOs office. I am also the Project Manager for the FIFA Live Your Goal Program, along with SAFA’s Anti- Doping responsibilities.
One of my fondest memories in football was my first Anti- Doping assignment at the 1999 All Africa Games.
I believe being a woman gives me an advantage in my job because my assertiveness and confidence has allowed me to climb the ladder in football spaces.
What I enjoy/love the most about working in football is that you learn different things, that all make up this one beautiful game.
Ms POTSO MOHAMI – SAFA EXECUTIVE SUPPORT
I joined SAFA in 2005 through an internship program and became full time in 2006.
I fell in love with football at the age of eight. My parents were active members of a local club, Early Birds F.C and they rented our backrooms to the club therefore; I grew up surrounded by football people.
I am responsible for SAFA’s Executive Support for the SAFA National Executive Committee in the CEO’s Office.
One of my fondest memories in football has was being involved in the preparations for the 2010 World Cup as part of the Local Organising Committee (LOC) as a SAFA Protocol Officer.
I believe being a woman gives me an advantage in my job because as we all know, Football is a male dominated industry as a woman your suggestions and decisions seem to be more respected than those of your male counterparts.
What I enjoy/love the most about working in football is is being part of the milestones that the Association is achieving in line with our Vision 2022.
