Africaine de Football (CAF) and Africa Global Logistics (AGL), a major player in African logistics, have entered into a strategic partnership which makes AGL the official logistics partner of African soccer. Africa Global Logistics thus becomes an official partner of the CAF TotalEnergies Africa Cup of Nations - Côte d'Ivoire 2023 and the CAF TotalEnergies Africa Women's Cup of Nations 2024.
This partnership between CAF and AGL, two organizations at the heart of Africa's transformations, is an opportunity to make a significant contribution to the development of soccer, a sport that unites and inspires African youth.
By becoming CAF's official logistics partner, AGL will offer tailored, secure and innovative logistics solutions, and will leverage its international logistics network in 47 African countries to support the promotion and development of African sport.
"This partnership with AGL represents a major challenge in our drive to make African soccer a global benchmark. Thanks to AGL, CAF will benefit from state-of-the-art logistics, crucial to the success of our events.
Together, we will work to reinvent the future of African soccer and interact with fans, teams and communities across the continent," said Veron Mosengo-Omba, General Secretary of the Confederation of African Football (CAF).
With 23,000 employees across the continent, and thanks to the support of its shareholder MSC, the world's leading shipowner, AGL's partnership with CAF confirms its commitment to supporting the major transformations underway on the African continent. "We are extremely honored to join forces with CAF in this strategic partnership.
This collaboration goes beyond mere sporting competitions. It's an opportunity to create a lasting, positive impact through soccer, while promoting universal values and supporting CAF in its mission to propel African soccer to new heights," said Philippe Labonne, President of Africa Global Logistics.
For CAF and AGL, this new partnership symbolizes their commitment to promoting shared values (continental roots, solidarity, respect for others and collective commitment) with a view to inclusive development in Africa.
