Mamelodi Sundowns president Patrice Motsepe has unveiled his 10-point action plan at the launch of his Confederation of African Football (CAF) Presidential Manifesto.

The official manifesto:

  1. Investing in developing and growing football in each African country through sponsorships, private sector and other partners
  2. Improving the efficiency and professionalism of CAF's Competitions and its staff
  3. Implementing and adhering to governance and auditing global best practices
  4. Investing in African football infrastructure
  5. Investing in our youth and in the future of African football.
  6. Developing and growing women's football
  7. Protecting the integrity and professionalising referees
  8. Establishing Video Assistant Referees (VAR).
  9. Statutory reforms
  10. Partnerships with FIFA and other Continental governing bodies

He hopes to become the first person from Southern Africa to be elected as CAF president when the elections take place in 15 days’ time. He says there is a need to restructure CAF and member associations must invest in sustainable football development.

Motsepe and SAFA president, Danny Jordaan, have been travelling the continent in recent weeks to garner support and also to familiarise themselves with football administration in Africa.

Member associations such as Nigeria, the DRC and Zimbabwe have already pledged their support for Motsepe.
