2013 AFCON CEO Signs up for Soccerex African Forum

Thu 4th Oct 2012 | Football Industry Events

Soccerex is excited to announce that the CEO of the 2013 African Cup of Nations Local Organising Committee, Mvuzo Mbebe, will be speaking on the ‘Delivering the Cup of Nations; Hosting Africa’s Premier Football Event’ conference session at the Soccerex African Forum in Durban, 23-24 October.

The African Cup of Nations is the premier football event in Africa and provides its host nation with a variety of logistical and sporting challenges to face. In this session, Mr. Mbebe, along with other industry experts, will examine the challenges faced by the organising committee, looking specifically at the preparations for next year’s tournament. With the draw of the tournament taking place on the evening of the last day of the African Forum, this session will be of huge interest and importance to all of the attendees.

Mr. Mbebe is a former senior executive within the SABC media group and has a substantial background in the business of sport, currently serving as secretary general of the Supreme Council for Sport in Africa (SCSA). He was the first Chef De Mission of the South African team to attend the All Africa Games in 1995, part of the management team for the first South African teams to attend the Commonwealth Games in Victoria in 1994 and a director for the 7th All Africa Games Organising Committee in 1999.

Speaking on Mr. Mbebe’s involvement, Soccerex CEO Duncan Revie said: “It is fantastic that Mvuso has decided to speak at the Soccerex African Forum. As CEO of the 2013 African Cup of Nations he will be able to provide an expert analysis on South Africa’s preparations to host the tournament. With the draw taking place on the evening of the last day of the Forum, the session will bring together all of the federations and coaches from across the continent.”
