CAF President Patrice Motsepe confirms a league with up to R1.6-billion in prizes.

The CAF Executive Committee decided on Sunday, where several significant issues were communicated, one of which was the assurance of improving the Confederation of African Football inter-club competition formats back to a two-legged final, as validated by iDiski Times in Edition 60.

"This won't happen again." It's something I inherited, something I couldn't change because the verdict was made for me. We will have a two-leg final because, once again," he said after the contentious final in which Wydad Athletic Club defeated Al Ahly at their home ground - the venue that has hosted the last two Champions League finals.

In yesterday's meeting in Morocco, it was entrenchedd that the CAF Super League will commence in August 2023, with a cumulative prize pool of up to $100 million, something Motsepe implied was feasible given the potential subsidy and commercial openings the continent's giant clubs would be able to elicit.

There has been no further evidence of the tournament's configuration or how teams for the Super League will be selected, but the CAF Champions League will proceed to run together with the newly formed tournament.

The next Women's Champions League will be held in Morocco in October 2022, the Futsal AFCON has been awarded to Mozambique, and the Beach Soccer has been awarded to Mozambique.
