CAF Renames African Super League


The President of the Confederation of African Football (CAF), Patrice Motsepe, on Sunday renamed the African Super League to the African Football League.

The competition kicks off October 2023.


“We have decided to change the name of the Super League to the African Football League.


“The African Football League kicks off next October.


“It will be the best league thanks to a huge prize fund,” Motsepe revealed in an interview with beIN Sport monitored in Rabat, Morocco.


The CAF chief also confirmed that further details about the first edition of the competition would be announced soon in Cote d’Ivoire.


“Our friends in Europe advised us not to use the expression ‘Super League’ due to the negative associations with the recent failed attempt in European football,” he explained.


The CAF President expressed confidence that the African League would elevate African football and make it more competitive globally.


In June, Motsepe revealed that the tournament would feature only eight teams, including the 2023 CAF Champions League semi-finalists Ahly of Egypt, Wydad Casablanca of Morocco, Esperance of Tunisia, and Mamelodi Sundowns of South Africa.


TP Mazembe of the Democratic Republic of Congo, Enyimba of Nigeria, Simba of Tanzania, and Petro Atletico of Angola may also participate.
