The current contract that started from 2008 is due to expire in 2016 and CAF has set in motion the process of re-negotiating the deal. The next cycle will run from 2017 to 2024.
Dr Jordaan, who also serves as special advisor to CAF President Issa Hayatou, was selected to serve on a seven-man group which also comprise fellow South African and former SAFA CEO Raymond Hack, the Chairman of the CAF Disciplinary Board.
Other members of the group are Suketu Patel (CAF 1st vice-president and chairman of the finance committee), Leodegar Tenga (CAF Chairman of the Marketing Committee), Hani Abo Rida (FIFA Executive Committee member and CAF marketing consultant), Hicham El Amrani (CAF Secretary General) and Amr Shaheen (CAF Marketing & TV Division Director).
The objective of this working group is to:
· Analyse the current contract and identify the positive and negative aspects of it
· Analyse the current/perceived value of CAF competitions
· Establish a clear strategy for the renewal
· Ensure the respect of the current contractual obligations for the renewal
· Submit to the CAF Executive Committee the best course of action
Dr Jordaan said he was honoured and happy to serve on a group that will make recommendations to CAF on a deal that will have far reaching benefits to African football.
The group will have its first meeting on September 13 in Addis Ababa.
