ADVOCATE Leslie Sedibe was today announced the South African

Football Association’s new chief executive.

The 2010 World Cup Local Organising Committee’s (LOC) legal advisor

signed a 12-month contract and is expected to spearhead the association’s vision

leading to the World Cup and beyond.

An excited Sedibe said he was up to the challenge and promised to

transform the association. “As someone with entertainment background, all I can

promise is that football will not be the same again and people must be ready to

be entertained.”

He said some of his key priorities would be to prepare Bafana

Bafana for the World Cup and engage all stakeholders in football including the

government and all the Safa regions.

“I will be meeting with the technical team next week to hear how

best we can support them ahead of the World Cup. I am confident that our team

will not let us down in the World Cup.”

Sedibe is expected to relinquish the top position when Danny

Jordaan returns from his seat as chief executive of the LOC next year.
