Benefits of football turfs

Unaffected by weather and resistant to harsh climatic conditions (rain, snow, drought, frost etc.). Ideal for covered stadia or stadia where steep stands cast a great deal of shade (artificial turf does not need sunlight).

Easy maintenance and low maintenance costs.
Fewer playing fields required, because it has greater longevity.

A variety of potential uses: training, matches and cultural events can be held on the same turf.
Improved playing conditions, which remain constant all year round.

Football Turfs Program Consists of

52 Football Turfs:

Plan to build 52 Football Turfs in SA, one in each SAFA region. Complete with club house with change rooms and ablution facilities, perimeter fencing and training lights. This is one of the most tangible legacies of the FWC. It is also the most significant project that the NLB has funded with arguably the best value for money of all its grassroots development projects

TRAINING

Progress to Date

Secured funding for 27/52 facilities from the National Lottery Agreed on locations with regional SAFA structures, Provincial Departments responsible for Sport and affected Municipalities.

THE MATCH-FIXING MATTER

SAFA

Match Fixing

       

07 October 2011 SAFA requested FIFA to investigate suspected match fixing in matches that took place before the 2010 FIFA World Cup The investigation commenced on 01 March 2012 when the FIFA Head of Security, Mr Chris Eaton and his assistant, Mr Terry Stearns interviewed persons of interest in SA Mr FIFA and Mr Stearns left FIFA in July 2012 The matter was reported to the Hawks and a file handed over to them in July 2012 The Hawks advised SAFA that a formal criminal complaint should be laid after receipt of the report from FIFA The NEC of SAFA decided on 07 December 2012 upon receipt of the report, the President of SAFA should establish a Task Team to process it The report compiled by the two gentlemen was submitted to SAFA on 14 December 2012 The Emergency Committee of SAFA (EMCO) which comprises the President, 4 Vice Presidents and one NEC Member met on 15 December 2012 and decided to put the people mentioned in the report on special leave. A case was opened with SAPS on 17 December 2012 and their investigation is still ongoing with the support of SAFA

The NEC met on 04 January 2013 and decided to reverse the decision of the Emergency Committee on grounds that the EMCO did not have authority to take such decisions and further, that the decision violated the rights of the affected people without due process. During this meeting the Minister offered SAFA the support of Government The NEC also decided that the report should be processed by the Legal and Security Committees of SAFA The two Committees met on 09 February 2013 and recommended to the NEC that a Commission of Enquiry should be established to investigate the matter. The NEC had a special meeting on 23 February 2013 and accepted the recommendation of the two Committees to establish a Commission of Enquiry SAFA and SASCOC on 05 March 2013 where a decision was taken that SASCOC would approach the Minister to effect the decision to establish an Independent Commission of Enquiry SAFA learnt later that when SASCCO met the Minister, they recommended that a Judicial Commission of Enquiry should be established At the time of the meeting with SASCOC and the Minister, it was revealed that SASCOC had received a dossier which documented alleged corruption and maldministration at SAFA

The Minister has made various media utterances wherein he indicated that the envisaged commission would investigate match fixing and the allegations contained in the said dossier The statements from the Minister caused FIFA to write to the Minister and SAFA to warn against the violation of FIFA Statutes 13 and 17 which prohibit government interference in football affairs The Minister and President of SAFA travelled to Zurich on 05 April 2013 where they met the Secretary General of FIFA, Mr Jerome Valcke. This meeting decided that the Independent Commission of Inquiry will deal exclusively with match fixing The NEC of SAFA met on 06 April 2013 and endorsed the decision taken in Zurich The Association was therefore completely surprised by a joint statement from the Minister and SASCOC on 16 April 2013 which indicated that the commission would investigate other matters related to SAFA. This was in clear violation of the decision of the Zurich meeting. The joint statement from the Minister and SASCOC caused FIFA to write a second letter in which they reminded the Parties to respect the decisions taken in Zurich on 05 April 2013

The statements from the Minister caused FIFA to write to the Minister and SAFA to warn against the violation of FIFA Statutes 13 and 17 which prohibit government interference in football affairs SAFA takes this opportunity to place on record that it did not complain to FIFA about the Minister’s interference but rather about SASCOC’S interference in affairs that were within the scope and domain of SAFA

Summary: Match Fixing

We would like to take this opportunity to place on record that we did not complain to FIFA about the Minister’s interference but rather about SASCOC’S interference in affairs that were within the scope and domain of SAFA This was in response to a letter from FIFA on 18 March 2013 in which they were following up on media reports and wanted to know if Government was interfering in the affairs of SAFA in any way Notwithstanding that the dossier makes baseless and defamatory allegations, we have nevertheless taken the liberty to respond to it in detail. (Please refer to the attached documents) We also wish to place it on record that we are in full support of a comprehensive investigation of match fixing by the Independent Judicial Commission of Enquiry We also place it on record that we are still in full cooperation with the Hawks who are conducting their own investigation into the alleged irregularities in matches that took place before the 2010 FIFA World Cup

SAFA Integrity and Anti Corruption Framework

There are worrying levels of corruption involving collusion by referees and club officials in the lower divisions 24hr Independent Whistle Blowing Policy approved by the NEC in 2012 Whistle Blowing Hotline has been in operation since 2012 Regular meetings with the Hawks Ongoing investigations into allegations of corruption in various provinces Ethics and Anti Corruption Policy approved by the NEC in March 2013
