FIFA office set for SA 07/08/04
Football's world governing body FIFA is planning to set up office in South Africa next year in a bid to help the country with their 2010 World Cup preparations.

A FIFA statement revealed on Friday that they have set up a company, MATCH AG, to assist South Africa in key areas such as accommodation, ticket sales and IT solutions, as well as with the general running of the tournament.

Soccer's leading body also revealed that they will play more significant roles in organisation compared to previous years, and have to "not only ensure a transfer of know-how but also establish a local presence on the host country".

The statement said they would set up an office in early 2005 "before committing further resources to the host country once the 2006 World Cup has drawn to a conclusion".

This has led to South Africa's interim 2010 organising committee, who must set up structures and hire personnel for a local committee before the end of the year, being forced to move their plans forward.
