The five countries who will be representing Africa at the next year’s FIFA World Cup in Russia will receive $500,000 dollars from the Confederation of Africa Football (CAF).

The move by the African football governing body, however, is to make sure Nigeria, Egypt, Morrocco, Tunisia and Senegal to prepare well for the competition bereft of the financial problems that face African nations at the World Cup.


An adhoc committee chaired by the CAF 1st Vice President, Kwesi Nyantakyi, to map out a kind of support to be provided to African representatives to the FIFA World Cup Russia 2018.

The committee, which has CAF Executive Committee member Kalusha Bwalya and presidents of the Football Associations of the five qualified countries as members, met in Moscow, Russia, on the sidelines of the draw for the FIFA World Cup scheduled for 1 December 2017.

At the meeting, it was decided that CAF will grant a financial subsidy of $500,000 (Five Hundred Thousand dollars) to each of the five African teams.

The financial package will be used mainly to strengthen and improve the technical supervision of each team.

In addition, CAF will provide each African representative with “fieldwiz” equipment, a technological device and physical performance measuring tool for outdoor team sports players.
