FUFA president Engineer Moses Magogo, Chief executive Officer Edgar Watson and Technical director Asuman Lubowa are part of the CAF members meeting FIFA Secretary General Jerome Valcke to voice their input on new development strategy for Anglophone countries.

At the four day workshop in Johannesburg, FIFA will brief the countries on technical matters and general cooperation between CAF and the world’s football governing body.

Over 27 member association presidents, CEOs and technical directors are discussing, among others FIFA governance reforms, new regulations governing development programmes and cooperation between CAF and FIFA.

The seminar opened with a workshop for technical directors yesterday and will be followed by the bilateral meetings of the presidents and Chief Executives.

‘FIFA continues to draw programmes to develop the game. Many innovations are coming up in the areas of administration, governance, technical and refereeing. FUFA is proud to be a member of FIFA’ said Magogo

Other areas of discussion include FIFA’s development programme and services for member associations, CAF club licensing, the role of technical directors – and how CAF member associations can maximise on FIFA’s goal project programme.

It is the second FIFA development seminar for African member associations following the one held in Marrakesh, Morocco last September.
