Kaizer Chiefs are preparing to host FIFA at the Village this week, and it’s safe to say that they’re pretty chuffed about being chosen alongside Orlando Pirates.
According to a statement from SAFA, the case study ‘aims to showcase successful leagues, clubs, players’ associations and other organisations’.
Marketing Director, Jessica Motaung, spoke of her pride at welcoming football’s governing body to Naturena, saying that they’re looking forward to hosting them.
FIFA’s project will be led by Andres Portabella, a FIFA Professional Football Advisor, and Ahmed Harraz, the Club Licensing manager.
Motaung told the club’s official website, “It is an honour and a huge recognition to be part of the FIFA Professional Football Case Study.
“To be selected as an example of a truly professional football organisation is something special. We look forward to (engaging) with the FIFA delegation in the coming days.
“We are looking forward to (representing) the PSL and the football fraternity. We are excited to showcase how much we have worked to be part of the development of football in South Africa.”
FIFA will visit Kaizer Chiefs between the 24th and 27th of January, attending their clash with Sundowns on Saturday, to ‘conduct a series of interviews and to take footage of the Chiefs Village’.
