The World Football governing body, FIFA boss, Gianni Infantino has proposed that the African continental Cup of Nations be played every four years, as part of a package of reforms designed to lift “African football to the top of the world”.
Infantino also told a seminar in Rabat, Morocco, attended by delegates from each of the Confederation of African Football, CAF’s 54-member associations, that he wanted new stadiums in every member state and had allocated one billion dollars to finance the ambitious programme.
The FIFA boss added that he wanted to “revolutionise African football”.
The Africa Cup of Nations is currently staged every two years, which makes it unpopular with European clubs. Infantino also promised to create a pan-African league that would feature 20 to 24 clubs, with a maximum of maybe two clubs per country, which would still play in their national leagues
