The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has opened an invitation to tender (ITT) for the Host Broadcast and TV Services across selected events in 2022 and 2023, including its flagship event, the TotalEnergies CAF Africa Cup of Nations Cameroon 2021.
The TotalEnergies CAF Africa Cup of Nations Cameroon 2021 is scheduled for 9 January 2022 until 6 February 2022, and the opening match will be played on Sunday 9 January 2022 at the newly-built Olembe Stadium in Yaoundé .
The company claims that the cup will be an “eagerly anticipated return for African football’s biggest prize.”
While the majority of the local Host Broadcast solution is already in place as part of a broad agreement between CAF and the Local Organising Committee, CAF is seeking partners to ‘complete the services’ across a range of fields, including host broadcast production, satellite distribution, graphics and broadcaster coordination services.
The process looks to allow CAF to select the companies that are best placed to achieve the organisation’s objectives of providing ‘quality’ coverage of the tournament and offering fans in Africa and internationally a high-quality viewing experience.
Some of the events in the tournament include TotalEnergies CAF Africa Cup of Nations Cameroon 2021, Africa U-20 Cup of Nations 2023, CAF Confederation Cup 2022-23, CAF Super Cup · Qualifying Competition – TotalEnergies CAF Africa Cup of Nations 2023 and the CAF Women’s Champions League 2022 to name a few.
Last week, the governing body announced that it ratified its agreement with Cameroon despite continuing questions over the country’s ability to stage the tournament.
Doubts relating to coronavirus had surfaced online, but a statement said that the Agreement for the Organising Association Agreement had been signed despite its executive committee highlighting “areas that still need some urgent attention ahead of the kick-off on 9 January”.
