CAF set to launch Super League in August.

CAF President  – Dr Motsepe Patrice  has confirmed that the launch of Super League is set for August 2022 in Dar essalam, Tanzania and kickoff dates set for August, 2023.

He confirmed this during yesterday’s (3rd – Just 2022) presser  Morocco.

CAF is set to inject in $100m in competition which will consist of 24 clubs.

During last year’s Extraordinary General Assembly in Egypt, the 54 Member Associations unanimously voted to go-ahead with the competition and gave a mandate to the President and the Executive Committee to lead the implementation of the competition.

Dr Motsepe said: “The decision has now been taken to implement the CAF Super League. It will start in August 2023 and we will launch it during CAF’s 44th Ordinary Assembly in Tanzania on August 10. We have been inundated with investors and sponsors, who are anxious to partner with us on the CAF Super League. It has huge potential to significantly uplift African football and to make it even more power.

“We will be engaging with stakeholders over the next few weeks to discuss the mechanics of the tournament and will release further details shortly. A significant amount of the money from the CAF Super League will be invested back into African football and part of the process involves giving $1 million every year to every one of CAF’s 54 Member Associations as a contribution to football and youth development. We also want to look to increase the prize money for the men’s and women’s CAF Champions Leagues,” said Dr Motsepe.
