Confederation of African Football, CAF after releasing her strategic focus and development pillar of women’s football development has also released a road map of their competition pillar.
This was released as part of CAF’s objectives and actions in order to deliver an upgrade in the standards of women’s football competitions.
According to the video clip of the pillar, women’s football in Africa is reaching new standards, CAF’s new strategy serves as a guideline to success for all member associations and African football stakeholders.
Some of CAF’s objectives for the competition pillar are:
– Enhancing the qualifying pathway for CAF Women’s Competitions
– Working with CAF member associations to increase the number of national leagues at youth and senior level
– Working diligently with the zonal unions to increase the number of Women’s Competitions for clubs and national teams at youth and senior levels
To tackle the above objectives, CAF actions include:
– Reviewing the competition’s regulations to incentivize participation
– Introducing new Continental Club Competition to strengthen domestic leagues and clubs, and
– Organizing the CAF Youth Championship to increase the motivation of players, coaches, and member associations
With this competition strategy, it is hoped that new club competitions such as CAF Women’s Champions League and Confederations Cup will be introduced as a way of strengthening Women’s leagues in Africa. This can also go a long way in pushing the Federation of International Football Association, FIFA to introduce the FIFA Women’s Club World Cup. This can also inform the introduction of CAF Women’s U-17 and U-20 Championships/Tournament which will serve as qualifiers for both FIFA World Cups.
