The Eastern Cape will throw its weight behind South African Football Association President, Danny Jordaan, when the national football body holds its elections in March.

An organisation known as the National Football Consultative Forum wants businessman, Tokyo Sexwale to replace Jordaan as Safa president.

The Eastern Cape, with eight regions will have the second biggest number of delegates at the meeting.

Safa’s Eastern Cape Chairperson Mzimkhulu Fina says all eight regions in the province will support Jordaan.

“We took a resolution in a meeting of  the PEC that we held in Jeffrey’s Bay that we support Dr Danny Jordaan, and let alone some regions and still going for elections. We have not seen any changes this coming Saturday to the position, but the resolution is still one that we support Dr Jordaan.”

Safa Nelson Mandela Bay region President Simphiwe Mkhangeli has confirmed their support for Jordaan.
