The President of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) Dr Patrice Motsepe appealed to private sector to invest in football.
This was Motsepe’s message in Tanzania where he met with Prime Minister Kassim Majaliwa and President of Tanzanian Football Federation Wallace Karia on Friday.
Motsepe presented the plan of CAF before Majaliwa on how to develop football in the continent.
He strongly appealed to private sector to partner with football because it makes business sense.
Motsepe said investment should commence in the grassroots level particularly in schools football and youth development structures. He said clubs must be encouraged to have academies.
Motsepe concluded that African football should run its affair with dignity in the midst of financial challenges.
Motsepe thanked Majaliwa and Karia for the hospitality. He was accompanied by Secretary General Veron Mosengo-Omba.
Prime Minister Majaliwa thanked president Motsepe for visiting Tanzania and pledging support for CAF’s vision.
On the same day, CAF President attended the CECAFA Extraordinary General Assembly at the Golden Tulip Hotel in Dar es Salaam where he called for co-operation amongst Member Associations to build a stronger CAF.
