18 April 2024 – South African Football Association (SAFA) President Dr Danny Jordaan is in Morocco to attend the CAF Executive Committee meeting on Friday, 19 April 2024 in Rabat.

After the successful 32nd SAFA Ordinary Congress held at the Birchwood Hotel & Conference Centre in Johannesburg at the weekend, Dr Jordaan is continuing with the Association’s work and will, among other things, give CAF a full briefing on the outcome of the gathering in South Africa.

Delegates from around the country descended on the venue in the east of Johannesburg to attend an event that was also graced by representatives from, among others, FIFA, SASCOC, COSAFA, and the Special Member, the National Soccer League (NSL). FIFA has already expressed satisfaction with the outcome of the SAFA Congress.

More than 50 women were part of the delegates from different regions and represented the structures of football, some of them presidents and some vice presidents.

They expressed their satisfaction and happiness with the progress that SAFA has made, and the commitment to women’s football. The Congress decided that every delegation must include at least one woman, which would bring more than 60 women to Congress, up from more than 50.

From a South African point of view, SAFA is looking forward to the announcement of the dates of the 2024 Women’s African Cup of Nations (WAFCON). Banyana Banyana are the defending champions after beating Morocco 2-1 in the final at the Prince Moulay Abdellah Stadium in Rabat in July 2022 to win the continental title for the first time.
