Close To Two Billion People Watching AFCON 2023 Globally  —CAF President, Motsepe

CAF president, Patrice Motsepe, has said about two billion people are watching the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations in Côte d’Ivoire.

Motsepe disclosed this at a press conference on Friday in Abidjan at a meeting with CAF Member Associations’ Presidents ahead of the AFCON final on Sunday.

According to the CAF boss it is an achievement that Africans should be proud of.

“We have had close to two billion people watching AFCON globally. We should be proud as Africans and the next one will be even better,” Motsepe said at the press conference via CAF X handle.

He added: “The success of Africa depends upon Africa working together, trading together, and in football, countries competing and playing together.”

    • This delusional human being! Hahahah, so you can say something good in your life? God be praised!!! So this Monkey Post guy can say something good about Peseiro and Super Eagles. He’s forgotten his clueless Rohr who couldn’t play good football one day, for 6 years, h even added “General”. For the first time since I started reading CS, this is the first time this guy would makes sense. What happened to you this negative guy? Wetin you smoke today, where’s all the negativity? Hahahahahahahaba

    CAF has done a very good job.
    Except for the majority dark skinned persons at the stands, one would think it was hosted at UEFA Champions League facilities.

    The VAR is better, far better than UEFA’s and FIFA’s.

    Whoever won/wins know they did so on pure merit and competence.
