BBC News – Oct 4, 2001

South Africa are the latest to throw their name into the ring, joining Morocco and Egypt in the race. A decision on the 2006 hosts will be made next year by Caf, who will inspect all three countries before making their decision.

BBC News – Oct 4, 2001
Safa vice president Reuben Mahlalela said: “He (Jordaan) has not resigned from Safa. “We did announce in March that Jordaan would be seconded to the 2010 World Cup bid as CEO after our annual general meeting. “However, one must remember that the Bid Committee also is part of Safa. ”

Transitional process

Mahlalela added that Jordaan’s move would not happen immediately… “It will be a transitional process. He will remain the Safa CEO until we appoint a Chief Operational Officer who will take over Jordaan’s duties. ”

The decision on who will host the 2010 World Cup will be taken in 2004 and thus the need to begin work on the bid as soon as possible. Jordaan together with Irvin Khoza were in charge of the unsuccessful 2006 bid which went to Germany. The two officials will take up the same responsibilities for the 2010 bid.
