History was made in Dakar, Senegal mid December when the West African Football Union (WAFU) Zones A and B signed a new partnership deal with one of the leading world premium sports broadcasters, America’s FOX Sports.
The landmark deal will see new long term investment injected into the development, training and support of West African football over the next 12 years.
Speaking during the signing, which has in attendance the leadership of the 16 WAFU countries; the president of the two zones, Augustin Senghor of Zone A and Kwesi Nyantakyi of Zone B both agreed that it was a new dawn for football development on the zone.
“Today is a great day for both WAFU Zone A and B nations and our fans,” Senghor, who is also the Senegal FA President, said.
“The support of FOX Sports as a global leader in sports broadcasting will help us further develop and promote our football. WAFU A and its member associations/federations are delighted with this landmark partnership and look forward to creating the best events for the supporters.”
