The Confederation of African Football (CAF) revealed that the long-awaited African Super League will finally launch in August 2023.

This was disclosed by the President of the Confederation of African Football (CAF), Patrice Motsepe, on Sunday, at the confederation’s Executive Committee.

CAF says it will be an economic generator for African football, and adds that each participating association will receive 1 million U.S. dollars.

While the format of the Super League is yet to be disclosed and how participants will be selected, CAF revealed that participating sides will need to have an academy and a women’s team.
