JOHANNESBURG - Kaizer Chiefs have been honoured by football's world governing body FIFA by being selected as a "case study" set up by the Professional Football Department to promote professional stakeholders around the globe.

Amakhosi were selected to form part of the study as “a club that provides an excellent example of a truly professional football organisation”.

“It is an honour and a huge recognition to be part of the FIFA Professional Football Case Study,” said Marketing Director Jessica Motaung upon receiving the news of FIFA’s interest to conduct a study on Kaizer Chiefs.

“To be selected as an example of a truly professional football organisation is something special,” says Motaung. “We look forward to engage with the FIFA delegation in the coming days.”
