CAF on Wednesday signed a new agreement with the Egyptian government granting the African football body diplomatic immunities and privileges.
The deal was signed by CAF president Ahmad and Egypt's Minister of Youth and Sports and was witnessed by Egyptian Prime Minister Dr Mostafa Madbouly.
The agreement recognizes the international legal personality of CAF as an international non-governmental organization. CAF will also benefit from several advantages, immunities and privileges similar to those granted to international organizations and diplomatic missions. The agreement is for a period of 10 years and shall be automatically renewed.
The 54-member body was established on 8 February 1957 in Khartoum, Sudan. Its first headquarters was situated in Khartoum for some months until a fire outbreak in the offices of the Sudanese Football Association when the organization moved near Cairo, Egypt. Youssef Mohamad was the first general secretary and Abdel Aziz Abdallah Salem the president. Since 2002, the administrative centre has been located in 6th of October City, Cairo, Egypt.
