CAF Considers Expanding CHAN to Include Players from Across African Leagues 

By Adeke Chukwuka

African football governing body CAF is reportedly contemplating expanding the eligibility for the African Nations Championship (CHAN) to include all players across the continent, as opposed to the current restriction to those playing in their domestic leagues.

The African Nations Championship (CHAN), initially designed for players in their home countries, may see a significant change as CAF President Patrice Motsepe suggests considering the inclusion of players from leagues outside their own nations but still within the continent.

Motsepe highlights the importance of recognizing African players and expresses the intention to study this potential evolution in the Executive Committee for CHAN.

The proposed CHAN evolution could enable players from various African nations, regardless of their club affiliations abroad, to partake and represent their home countries. CAF President Patrice Motsepe envisions a scenario where, for instance, an Algerian player competing for an Egyptian club could still participate in CHAN and represent Algeria.

CAF’s initiative aims to enhance the stature of the competition, offering an international platform for African players to showcase their talents. This potential change is expected to inject new excitement and competitiveness into the tournament. Notably, Kenya is set to host the upcoming CHAN 2024.
