Jessica Motaung Appointed to CAF Women Football Standing Committee

Kaizer Chiefs’ Marketing and Commercial Director, Jessica Motaung, has been appointed to the Confederation of African Football’s (CAF) Organising Committee for Women Football Standing Committee from 2022-2024.

The appointment, confirmed by CAF Secretary General, Veron Mosengo- Omba, comes in the wake of Ms. Motaung’s attendance at a Women’s Football Taskforce Workshop organised by CAF back in 2019, where she was part of a group of 23 influencers and key stakeholders representing 17 African nations at the time.

The committee is made up of high profiled and experienced football administrators and corporate people from around the African continent and chaired by Kanizat Ibrahim, who is CAF’s 5th Vice President and the President of the Organising Commitee for Women’s Football of CAF.

“We are very proud of our Marketing Director, Jessica Motaung,” declares Kaizer Chiefs Chairman Kaizer Motaung. “We are happy to see one of our own grow and spread her wings in continental football. Being the only South African in the committee speaks volumes. It truly is a remarkable feat.

“We are confident she will add much value to CAF and women’s football on the continent given her experience that spans over two decades. We have watched the growth of the game over the last number of years and Jessica’s role will also help SAFA, PSL and Kaizer Chiefs as we look to move in the direction of expanding our ladies’ participation in football.”

Women’s football is the fastest growing sport property globally and CAF, like FIFA, are strategically placing people in that space who can fast track the development and turn the product around.

The position will require frequent travel between Johannesburg and CAF’s Cairo headquarters, as well as occasional trips to other African destinations.

An emotional and excited Jessica expressed her gratitude to CAF President, Dr Patrice Motsepe and the rest of the leadership for this appointment: “It is also important to thank my Chairman, Mr. Kaizer Motaung, for his support and blessings.
