Sexwale Announces Intention To Run For FIFA President

South African businessman, Tokyo Sexwale, has announced his intention to run for the FIFA presidency.

Sexwale made the announcement at a press conference on Saturday in Johannesburg, after he was endorsed by the South African Football Association National Executive Committee.

The announcement comes two days before the deadline for candidates to submit paperwork for the emergency elections to replace Sepp Blatter on 26 February 2016.

UEFA President Michel Platini, Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein of Jordan, ex-FIFA official Jerome Champagne and David Nakhid of Trinidad and Tobago have already submitted papers for the presidency.

To qualify as a candidate, you must be nominated by at least five national federations, while they must also show that they have played an active role in football for two of the last five years.
