The CAF Executive Committee (EXCO) will meet in Kigali, Rwanda this Saturday, 15 May 2021, chaired by CAF President, Dr. Patrice Motsepe.
FIFA President, Gianni Infantino will be among the distinguished guests.
The main items on the Executive Committee Agenda relate to the implementation of the Pan-African Schools Football Championship, the CAF/FIFA Refereeing Agreement and the FIFA-CAF USD 1 billion Infrastructure Development project. Amongst some of the matters under discussions will be the 2022-2024 competitions calendar and the challenges relating to the pre-match Covid19 testing.
Prior to the EXCO meeting, the President will hold several meetings including with the six CAF Zonal Unions Presidents (COSAFA, CECAFA, UNAF, UNIFFAC, WAFU A, WAFU B).
In his first address as CAF President, Dr. Motsepe spoke about creating a new CAF that will take African football to new heights.
“I’m very excited. There is a great deal of urgency of getting things done. There is a going to be a lot of work and a lot of running. We have to make sure that African football is not just competitive but globally successful. Africa spends millions of dollars every year paying for tv rights of leagues outside Africa. There is a need to build our own products and we will succeed.
“The face of African football will never be the same again. 95% of our conversations will be about football and that is fine but there must be that 5% where we discuss the importance of the private sector partnerships. We need to restore the pride, the dignity and the respect of Africa,” said Dr Motsepe earlier this year.
