South Africa Unable To Take Advantage Of 'Free' FIFA Money

South Africa is one of 10 countries that has not been able to take advantage of free FIFA money because it has "failed to put together a concrete project" for the organization to fund, according to Mark Gleeson of the SOWETAN. Football's governing body has paid for 600 projects in other countries, but the South African Football Association is "lagging behind." Three years ago SAFA proposed to FIFA a project to upgrade the School of Excellence in Tembisa, but it "first had to get a lease on the land" before the money would be sent from Zurich. Nothing has happened since, even though last month SAFA President Kirsten Nematandani claimed that the "long wait for the lease was at an end." Reports now suggest this is not true, "the document is still not signed" because the SAFA is not happy with all the clauses (SOWETAN, 10/11).
