Johannesburg - Danny Jordaan will announce his intention to run for the South African Football Association (SAFA) presidency after 32 of the mother body's 52 regions nominated him as their candidate on Wednesday, according to the Sowetanlive website.

The deadline for the submission of nominations was at 00:00 on Thursday  and Jordaan will end months of speculation on Friday when he officially challenges for the most powerful seat in local football.

The 32 regions also proposed Chief Mwelo Nonkonyana, Elvis Shisana and Lucas Nhlapo to serve as Jordaan's vice presidents in SAFA nomination forms seen by Sowetan on Wednesday.

Former Mamelodi Sundowns managing director Anastasia Tsichlas, Ria Ledwaba, Nomsa Mahlangu, Norman Arendse, Truman Prince and Xolile Komphela look set to be among those who serve on the SAFA national executive committee after their names appeared as nominees on many of the nomination lists.
