The Council of Southern Africa Football Associations (COSAFA) held a productive meeting of all member presidents in Johannesburg on Saturday 11 Feb.
The meeting produced a number of resolutions, including the full endorsement of the Madagascar Football Association president, known simply as Ahmed, as he seeks the position of president of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) at the governing body’s elections in Ethiopia next month.
COSAFA has resolved to only support sitting presidents of the various FAs when individuals vie for CAF or FIFA elections.
COSAFA also supports equal representation within both CAF and FIFA positions, as well as the different language category representation as articulated in recent CAF statutes.
New COSAFA president Dr Phillip Chiyangwa said he was pleased with the clarity provided by the Council and the decisions made.
“This was our first meeting since the new executive was voted into office and we are happy with the resolutions taken by the Council, which I think will change the face of the region,” Dr Chiyangwa said.
