The elective congress was originally scheduled for Saturday 24 March 2018, however, was postponed by the NEC on account of various issues relating to its legitimacy.

“I can confirm that a new date has been finalised of which the SAFA NEC members are all happy with,” revealed a Siya source close to the FA.

“All that’s missing is the go-ahead from SAFA in terms of making the new date known,” added the source.

SAFA’s presidential run-up to, and the elective congress itself has suffered various hindrances. These have ranged from the legitimacy of several presidential candidates vying for the FA top seat, most notably Mwelo Nonkonyana to the withdrawal of candidates under uncertain circumstances.

Furthermore, the congress run-up saw the withdrawal of the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) at the eleventh hour.

As things stand at the moment, current SAFA president Dr Danny Jordaan still remains unopposed for a second term in office when SAFA announce the new date for their elective congress.
