Cape Town - South African Football Association (SAFA) president Danny Jordaan has declared the association's recent constitutional congress as a "runaway success" which passed a number of wide-ranging resolutions.
Deputy Minister of Sport and Recreation of South Africa, Gert Oosthuizen, and Council of Southern Africa Football Associations (COSAFA) president, Phillip Chiyangwa, attended the congress last Saturday, as well as other important dignitaries.
Resolutions included the future appointment of a chief operating officer and group chief financial officer in 2018.
In addition, a Women's National League is set to be formed which will be made up of nine provincial teams, Mamelodi Sundowns, Bloemfontein Celtic and a USSA outfit.
A plan to introduce a Super Cup is also in place which involves the winners of the PSL, Telkom Knockout, MTN8 and Nedbank Cup winners playing for the trophy along with the National First Division and ABC Motsepe champions.
"All in all, this was one of the most productive meetings ever and I would like to thank the Deputy Minister of Sport, COSAFA President and all the delegates for making sure the weekend meeting was a runaway success," Jordaan said in a statement.
"The Congress was a celebratory and joyous event; it showed the power of South African football. The sheer number of delegates, the boisterous debates, the touching address by the SA Deaf Football Association and the input of the government and COSAFA were awesome."
