The South African Football Association has roped in two seasoned administrators, Jabulani Ndobe and Victor Matshogo, to run the Vodacom League.

He will be in charge of five provinces - Gauteng, Mpumalanga, Free State, Eastern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal.

As for Matshogo, he is going to Safa House after serving the federation as a second coordinator of the Metropolitan League and West Rand regional executive member.

Matshogo will be responsible for Limpopo, North West, Northern Cape and Western Cape.

Safa has also announced that Wellington Ngcobo and Michael Mofokeng will be joint coordinators of the Metropolitan League.
