Under this agreement, caF enjoys several advantages, immunities and privileges equivalent to those granted to international organizations and diplomatic missions. Such a commitment had initially angered the Egyptian government, which also feared that the CAF would move from its headquarters in Cairo. The organization had been active since 2017 without a seat agreement. With seven titles, Egypt is the best performing team in Afcon`s history, two better than the next Cameroon team, which has five titles. Egyptian club Al-Ahly will face Zamalek on November 27 in the CAF Champions League final in Cairo, the winner of the Total Super Cup being Morocco`s RS Berkane. PwC also recommended that the investigation into the role of Von Ahmad and his attaché Loic Gerand be continued in the agreement with the French company Tactical Steel, whose financial transactions with CAF it described as “highly suspicious”. On Wednesday, CAF President Ahmad Ahmad and Egyptian Minister of Youth and Sport Dr Ashraf Sobhy signed the agreement in the presence of the country`s Prime Minister, Dr. Mostafa Madbouly. After speculation that Ahmad would move the CAF headquarters out of Cairo, with Morocco seen as his preferred option, the new agreement will see the CAF in Egypt for another 10 years with a renewable option for another 10 years. The new agreement is a Pyrrhic victory for Ahmad. His organization was engulfed by the recent major crisis that followed The PwC audit, which highlighted chronic issues and financial governance and governance at the heart of FCA.
The audit described the governing body as “unreliable and incompetent” and found transactions of more than $20 million, which are “little or no supporting documentation” or are considered “riskier”.” At the time, Fifa said its mission in Africa had been “successfully carried out” by providing a “set of knowledge, recommendations and proposals.” Ahmad denied any wrongdoing in the case. CAF issued a statement explaining the agreement reached by the CAF with the Qatari Football Association (QFA) not to organize the match in Qatar after changing the schedules of both parties due to the persistent pandemic situation, and noted that .” The agreement recognizes the FCA`s international legal personality as an international non-governmental organization. The contract has a term of 10 years and is automatically renewed. The global audit firm also recommended examining Ahmad`s role in the agreement with the French company Tactical Steel. “The new agreement will replace the previous headquarters agreement, signed in November 2007, especially after the CAF requested a new contract after the pre-signing of the contract,” Sobhi told the ministry of Youth and Sports` official website. The exact extent of diplomatic immunity is unclear, given the vague wording. CAF was founded in 1957 and is headquartered in the Egyptian capital, but the last accommodation agreement expired in 2017. The agreement was signed on 12 February by CAF President Ahmad Ahmad and Egyptian Minister of Sport and Youth Ashraf Sobhi in the presence of Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly. The CAF has learned of the absence of AFCON trophies by the secretariat of the Egyptian Football Federation. Our doors are open and @EFA can count on our help to find priceless memories.
