The timing, frequency and number of qualifiers in the Africa Cup of Nations are some of the issues to be tackled as CAF officials, coaches and former stars meet for a two-day CAF sympozium in Rabat, Morocco.
New-look Africa Cup of Nations and CAF Champions League competitions could emerge after the discussions which begins on Tuesday. FIFA president Gianni Infantino is expected to be part of it.
According to AFP, CAF executive committee meeting will precede an extraordinary general assembly involving the 55 member associations, where changes could be adopted.
Former stars invited include Joseph-Antoine Bell of Cameroon, Hossam Hassan of Egypt, Rabah Madjer of Algeria, Austin “Jay Jay” Okocha of Nigeria and Badou Zaki of Morocco.
Leading national coaches Florent Ibenge of the Democratic Republic of Congo, Herve Renard of Morocco and Claude le Roy of Togo are also expected to attend.
CAF President, Ahmad Ahmad, after defeating long-serving Cameroonian Issa Hayatou last March, vowed to review the tournaments.
Hosting the biennial tournament in January and February has long been a source of frustration for European clubs, especially in England and France, where many Africans play.
Hayatou consistently rejected suggestions of a move to June, saying the weather then was too hot in northern Africa, too wet in the west and centre and too cold in the south.
