The Confederation of African Football
Football
(CAF, /kæf/; French: Confédération Africaine de Football; Arabic: الإتحاد الأفريقي لكرة القدم‎) is the administrative and controlling body for African association football. 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 in Khartoum, Sudan,[1] by Egyptian, Ethiopian, South African and Sudanese[2] 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
Khartoum
for some months until a fire outbreak in the offices of the Sudanese Football Association when the organization moved near Cairo, Egypt. Youssef Mohammad 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 56 member associations: 55 are full members, including former associate Zanzibar (admitted in March 2017),[3] while Réunion
Réunion
remains an associate member (see the CAF Members and Zones section below). The current CAF President is Ahmad Ahmad, who was elected on 16 March 2017.[4] The 1st Vice-President is Kwesi Nyantakyi
Kwesi Nyantakyi
from Ghana, the 2nd vice president is called Constant Omari Selemani from RD Congo and the 3rd Vice president is Fouzi Lekjaa from Morocco.[5] Current CAF General Secretary is Egyptian Amr Fahmy since 16 November 2017.[6]
