Caf and Fifa officials, national association officials and national team coaches are in Morocco for the first ever African Football Symposium to brainstorm on how to improve the beautiful game across the continent.

The two-day meeting that will be held from July 18 to 19 at the International Conference Center Mohammed VI in Skhirat is an opportunity for dialogues and expertise exchanges of all African football decision makers.

Under the theme “African Football, Our Vision”, this meeting has attracted former footballers including big names like Antoine Bell, Anthony Baffoe, Geremi Njitap, Austin 'Jay Jay' Okocha, Badou Zaki, Hossam Hassan, Patrick Mboma, Ahmed Faras and Mohammed Timoumi to mention but a few.

Renowned coaches Claude Le Roy, Herve Renard and Florent Ibenge will be part of the conversation that is expected to get the wheels of change rolling under the new Caf leadership of Ahmad.

Fifa President Gianni Infantino and Secretary General Fatma Samoura have arrived as well to be apart of this historic meeting that will focus on Afcon, interclub competitions, youth football, media and communication, marketing and television, international partnerships as well as the role of players and their representatives.

The Caf Executive Committee will then meet on July 20 at Sofitel Hotel Rabat before the General Assembly the following day at the same venue.
