    The African Super League is a new annual continental club football competition run by the CAF that is set to kickoff in October 2023. It was announced on 28 November 2019 by Gianni Infantino, President of FIFA. It was initially launched as the Africa Super League on 10 August 2022 in Tanzania with a kickoff date of August 2023 and was to include twenty-four elite African clubs with a promotion/relegation system, but will be scaled down to 8 teams for its inaugural campaign. It will run alongside CAF's other main club competition, the CAF Champions League, and will not be a replacement for it. The initial total prize money for the Africa Football League would have been US$100 million, with the winner receiving US$11.5 million, and each participating club receiving an initial cash injection of US$2.5 million. Some of the funding from the Africa Football League would have been used to allocate US$1 million per annum to each of CAF’s 54 member countries, for a total investment of US$54 million per annum to develop football in Africa. CAF would have also received US$50 million per annum to develop football for boys and girls, employ world-class staff, as well as to improve and to make all its other competitions attractive and appealing to football spectators, TV viewers, sponsors and other partners. The Africa Football League will also support the growth of club football, the construction and maintenance of football infrastructure and facilities, and the training and the retention of football talent in Africa

    Format

    The initial details of the format were announced during the launch ceremony in 2022:
    • The competition would have 24 teams divided into three regionalized groups (North, Central/West, South/East), for eight teams per group, and there would be a maximum of three teams per country.
    • The teams would have been from 16 countries, representing approximately 1 billion people.
    • The competition would have 197 matches (with a maximum of 21 matches played by the finalists) and promotion/relegation play-offs.
    • The final would have been played in a single match, with the final designed to become "the Super Bowl of Africa".
    The details of the 8 team format to be used in 2023 are not yet known. It is currently unknown if the previously announced format would be used in the future.
