The Confederation of African Football or CAF (French: Confédération Africaine de Football, Arabic : الاتحاد الأفريقي لكرة القدم) is the administrative and controlling body for African association football.

Contents

CAF represents the national football associations of Africa, runs continental, national, and club competitions, and controls the prize money, regulations and media rights to those competitions.

CAF is the biggest of the six continental confederations of FIFA. Since the expansion of the number of teams at the World Cup finals to 32 in 1998, CAF has been allocated five places, though this was expanded to six for the 2010 tournament in South Africa, to include the hosts.

CAF was established on 8 February 1957 at the Grand Hotel [1] in Khartoum, Sudan, [2] by Egyptian, Ethiopian, South African and Sudanese [3] FAs, following former discussions between the Egyptian, Somali, South African and Sudanese FAs earlier on 7 June 1956 at the Avenida Hotel in Lisbon, Portugal. Its first headquarters was situated in Khartoum for some months until a fire outbreak in the offices of the Sudanese Football Association when the organization moved near Cairo, Egypt. Youssef Mohamad was the first general secretary and Abdel Aziz Abdallah Salem the president. Since 2002, the administrative center has been located in 6th of October City, Cairo, Egypt. CAF currently has 54 member associations: 54 are full members, while Zanzibar and Réunion are associate members (see the CAF Members and Zones section below).

The current CAF President is Patrice Motsepe from South Africa, who was elected on 12 March 2021. [4] The 1st Vice-President is Augustin Senghor from Senegal, the 2nd Vice-President is Ahmed Yahya from Mauritania and the 3rd Vice-President is Waberi Souleiman from Djibouti. [5] Current CAF General Secretary is the Swiss-Congolese Véron Mosengo-Omba since 13 March 2021. [4]

History

On 18 September 2007 the CAF launched a competition for all African composers to create its Anthem.

The chosen anthem was first published to the site on 16 January 2008. The usage of the anthem and its composer are still unknown.

Competitions

CAF competitions

International

The main competition for men's national teams Africa Cup of Nations, started in 1957. In 2009, the CAF started organising another competition for men's national teams, the African Nations Championship composed exclusively of national players playing in the national championship. CAF also runs national competitions at Under-20 and Under-17 levels. For women's national teams, CAF operates the Africa Women Cup of Nations for senior national sides and the African U-20 Women's World Cup qualification at under-20 level, since 2008 there is an African U-17 Cup of Nations for Women for under-17 sides.

Club

CAF also runs the two main club competitions in Africa: the CAF Champions League was first held in 1964, and was known as the African Cup of Champions Clubs (or just African Cup) until 1997; and the CAF Confederation Cup, for national cup winners and high-placed league teams, was launched by CAF in 2004 as a successor to the African Cup Winners' Cup (begun in 1975). A third competition, the CAF Cup, started in 1992 and was absorbed into the CAF Confederation Cup in 2004. [10]

The CAF Super Cup, which pits the winners of the Champions League against the winners of the CAF Confederation Cup (previously the winners of the Cup Winners' Cup), came into being in 1992.

The Afro-Asian Club Championship was jointly organised with AFC between the winners of the CAF Champions League and the winners of the AFC Champions League. The last Afro-Asian Club Championship took place in 1998.

Sponsors

In October 2004, MTN has contracted a four-year deal to sponsor African football's major competitions. This agreement, which was worth US$12.5 million, was the biggest sponsorship deal in African sporting history at that time. [11]

In July 2009, Orange has signed an eight-year deal to sponsor African football's major competitions. Terms of the deal were not disclosed but CAF previous year put a value of €100 million for a comprehensive and long-term package of its competitions when it opened tenders for a new sponsor. The deal included the African Nations Cup, the CAF Champions League, the CAF Confederation Cup, the CAF Super Cup, the African Nations Championship and the African Youth Championship. [12]

In July 2016, Total replaced Orange as the main sponsor and has secured an eight-year sponsorship package from the Confederation of African Football (CAF) for a value of €950 million [13] to support its principal competitions, including the CAF Champions League, renamed Total CAF Champions League. [14]
