Despite the failure of the project in Europe, Patrice Motsepe, president of the Confederation of African Football (CAF), is in favor of the creation of an African Super League. “We are evaluating and are in preliminary talks to launch an inclusive, widely supported and beneficial CAF African Super League,” he said.
African soccer’s governing body is looking for additional revenue and Patrice Motsepe said such a project should “contribute to African soccer becoming competitive and self-sustaining.”
