Ethiopia Lobbies to Relocate CAF Headquarters

Ethiopia Lobbies to Relocate CAF Headquarters Ethiopia Lobbies to Relocate CAF Headquarters

Ethiopia is planning to lobby for relocation of Confederation of African Football (CAF) headquarters from Cairo, Egypt, to its capital Addis Ababa.

The upcoming CAF Congress in Addis, March next year, will present an opportunity to pitch for the “popular” idea at the highest level.

“Ethiopia is seeking support from many CAF members who feel Cairo is far from them, and it’s difficult to get direct flights to the North African country,” a source close to Ethiopian Football Federation (EFF) told soka25east.com.

56-member CAF was formed 59-years ago and was first hosted in Khartoum, Sudan for months until fire consumed its offices and was then relocated to Cairo.
