SAFA boss Danny Jordaan explains agenda for FIFA summit in Oman

Posted: 6 February 2018 Time: 17:30

SAFA president Danny Jordaan will be attending a two-day FIFA summit in Muscat, Oman to discuss forming a women's world league comprising the top 16 nations, among other issues.

The league, proposed to start in 2020, would include two teams from Africa.

Banyana Banyana are currently ranked third on the continent behind Nigeria and Ghana.

“This is why it is imperative to urgently launch our national women’s league. This will galvanise the competition among our girls to compete with the best in the world,” said Jordaan.

Another hot topic to take centre stage at the summit are the rules governing the eligibility of national team players.

“The summit is going to touch on amending regulations around eligibility of players to feature for their national teams.

“The summit will also look on what need to be reviewed within the transfer system in order to make it more transparent, increase accountability, reward clubs that trained the players and above all improve competitive balance,” added Jordaan, who will be accompanied on the trip by SAFA CEO Dennis Mumble.
