Former Banyana Banyana captain Amanda Dlamini has been appointed as the Senior Commerical and Marketing Manager of The South African Football Association (SAFA).
SAFA confirmed an official statement on Wednesday morning that Dlamini has been roped into the association with duties of overseeing and monitoring commercial partners, sponsors for events and projects.
The appointment into the administrative structure was praised by CEO Tebogo Motlanthe who lauded the midfielder who represented South Africa at the 2012 and 2016 Olympics as a legend.
"It has been SAFA’s tradition to promote our past legends to administrative roles and Amanda’s appointment is one such. We welcome her to the SAFA family," Advocate Motlanthe said.
The 32-year-old who amassed over 100 caps for the senior women's national team will also be responsible for taking SAFA's marketing and commercial viability further.
