Speaking in Cairo on Friday, the FIFA President emphasized the importance of these investments.

He said that the football body is more committed than ever to making sure that it obtains 1 billion U.S. dollars required for the investment in infrastructure in African football.

“This is really the year of collaboration, of partnership, of unity between us. We have committed to that; we have committed to invest in infrastructure in Africa.” The FIFA President said.

Alongside such investments in infrastructure, FIFA understands the importance of more competitive, regular football for the development of football on the pitch in Africa.

Two topics up for discussion at the CAF Extraordinary General Assembly in Cairo were the consultation on the International Match Calendar (IMC) and a proposed Pan-African Super League.

Wenger wants to see African teams playing.

Arsène Wenger, Chief of Global Football Development, was also in attendance to discuss the IMC and the possibility of a biennial FIFA World Cup. Wenger wants to see African teams playing at a higher level, more often.

He called on African nations to work towards playing at the top-level competitions saying that it was possible if the work is put in and well infrastructure that supports football in Africa.

“I defend this project because it is to make football better and more competitive,” Wenger said

The FIFA President spoke about the particular importance of consultation with African stakeholders due to the youthful make-up of the continent.

Infantino said that with 40% of the African population below that 15 years of age, football deserves protection to remain relevant as the youthful population loves it, adding that Africa as a continent needs to think about how it can make the sport more exciting to the young generation who have many things to focus on.

African teams have many times failed to impress at International competitions such as the World Cup, a thing that has been associated with poor infrastructure and lack of support from the relevant governments.
