Johannesburg - The South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (SASCOC) says the troubled national football association must submit a report on its finances every six months for the next two years.

SASCOC also decided on Wednesday to appoint a three-member finance team "to meet with SAFA regarding its current financial position."
