The Nigerian Football League (NFL's) top brass are in South Africa to learn from the Premier Soccer League.

They arrived in Johannesburg yesterday and were welcomed by Irvin Khoza, chairman of the league and the 2010 World Cup Local Organising Committee.

The PSL has organised a workshop for them, which covers all aspects of soccer administration.

Kjetil Siem, the PSL chief executive, took them through the structure of the league, which is ranked the best financially on the continent.

Siem and Peter Mancer, the league's consultant, dealt with issues around marketing. Later in the day, the PSL covered public relations and press as well as financial structures.

Today, veteran administrator Dan Leboa will handle the structure of football administration, an area in which he is the acting general manager. The session will end in the afternoon with talks on the registration of players and other issues.
