The South African Football Association's annual general meeting kicked off on time at a hotel near the OR Tambo Airport this morning under heavy security.
Upon entrance to the hotel where the meeting is being held, vehicles were all searched by members of the police.
There are more than 100 police members on duty in an around the hotel outskirts and 40 marshals.
There is concern that the meeting could become reckless when the delegates vote for a new president to replace outgoing Molefi Oliphant.
There is a bitter rivalry between the two leading soccer officials, Danny Jordaan and Irvin Khoza who are contesting for SA soccer's top job.
Khoza is chairman of both the PSL and the 2010 Local Organising Committee while Jordaan is the CEO of the 2010 LOC.
