Confederation of African Football Hall of Fame
Celebrate excellence, Embrace longevity, Salute history.
Over the years, CAF have found a gap in history. Many organisations, have done very well to reward excellence in a space of time. In football, we get Award ceremonies in all categories, like a Player of the Year, Balon d’Or, etc. Even in the entertainment world, we get Grammys, Emmys, Academy awards, which basically reward the jobs done in a calendar year.
What is lacking, though, in some areas, is a place where such yearly achievers, serial achievers and many people who have done exceptionally well for their industries, will remain in history books, beyond the year they were honoured.
And that is what we are targeting. We want to celebrate people who have made a mark. We want to encourage youths and even children yet unborn to see the achievements of those in the Hall of Fame, and to serve as inspiration for them to emulate such excellence.
We are committed to using the past in the present to build a great future.
