Football: Africa launches its Super League

The Confederation of African Football formalized, on Sunday July 3, the creation of a Super League from August 2023.

While in Europe, it makes a lot of talk, Africa has decided to take the plunge. The Confederation of African Football announced on Sunday the launch, from August 2023, of an African Super League with an endowment of 100 million dollars (96 million euros).

Details of the new competition will be unveiled next month at a launch ceremony in Tanzania, CAF said in a statement.

“A significant part of the money from the CAF Super League will be reinvested in African football and part of the process is to give $1 million each year to each of the 54 CAF member associations as a development contribution of football and youth”, specifies the president of the African Confederation, Patrice Motsepe, in the press release.

Cristiano Ronaldo wants to play in the Champions League next season.

The launch of this Super League was unanimously approved last year by the 54 member associations of CAF.

In Europe, the project, led by many historic clubs such as Real Madrid, FC Barcelona or Juventus Turin, had created great controversy.
