African Soccer Launches $100M Super League Amid Big Financial Loss
08/11/2022 12:02am

A new 24-club super league that aims to revolutionize soccer in Africa and become its richest competition was launched by Confederation of African Football president Patrice Motsepe on Wednesday, just hours after his organization reported a loss of nearly $50 million for last year.Motsepe said at CAFs general assembly meeting in Arusha, Tanzania, that the CAF Africa Super League would offer total prize money of $100 million, over five times more than Africas current Champions League.The new competition is set to kick off in August 2023 and the winning club will get $11.5 million in its inaugural season, Motsepe said at a launch event following the general assembly. Each of the 24 teams taking part will be given $2.5 million at the start to help cover expenses.CAF and Motsepe didnt announce which 24 African clubs would take part in the first season, or give details of the exact format. He said there would be another announcement in a few months.FIFA president Gianni Infantino attended CAFs general assembly and the launch. He has previously given his backing to an African super league and also reportedly gave behind-the-scenes support to last years doomed European Super League before later distancing himself from it.European Super LeagueSome of the world&039s biggest clubs in Europe tried to launch a super league in 2021 that later collapsedsoccerJul 11Super League Clubs Face UEFA in Soccer&039s Big Legal MatchEurope PoliticsApr 30, 2021The European Super League Plan Collapsed. But It Might Not Be Dead ForeverWhile the Africa Super Leagues $100 million is dwarfed by UEFAs Champions League with $2 billion split among European clubs in prize money it would still easily be the richest competition in Africa.Even the African Cup of Nations, the continental showpiece for national teams, has just under $30 million in prize money. Senegal collected $5 million for winning the tournament in February.It is a project that will make African club football shine beyond Africa as well, Infantino said of the proposed competition.However, Motsepe offered no concrete details of where the money to fund CAFs new cross-continent league would come from, with the African soccer body in financial difficulties. CAF figures released Wednesday showed that it had made a $44.6 million net loss in 2020-21 and some recent media reports have even claimed that CAF is effectively bankrupt just over a year into the South African mining billionaires presidency.Alongside the $100 million, Motsepe said another $50 million would be made available to help pay players and keep some of the continents top talent in Africa.Motsepe said last month that CAF had been inundated with investors and sponsors but he is yet to announce a major commercial deal for the Africa Super League.We believe we can change the face of African football, Motsepe said, repeating there was huge interest from commercial partners. We are raising $100 million and we are confident that it will make a huge contribution in improving the quality and the standard of African football.The idea of a super league for Africa was first floated two years ago and Infantino has been closely associated with the project since the start, with some speculating hes the driving force behind it. Infantino said he was fortunate enough to assist at some of the meetings.Earlier at CAFs general assembly meeting, Motsepe referred to Infantino as an African brother based in Europe and said all 54 of CAFs member countries would vote for him in next years FIFA presidential election in Rwanda.That comment was likely to again provoke criticism that CAF under Motsepe is too close to Infantino, who used his influence as head of world soccer to ensure Motsepe was elected unopposed as CAF president in March 2021 despite the South African having no previous experience in international soccer administration.CAF is soccers second-largest continental body after UEFA and provides a big bloc of votes for the FIFA leadership contest. For many, Infantino has followed a similar tactic to predecessor Sepp Blatter, whose charm offensive in Africa helped him secure a large portion of those 54 votes and stay in power for nearly 20 years.Motsepe last month responded to criticism that he was a puppet for Infantino, something that has shadowed him ever since he was elected with Infantinos help.There are things we agree upon and things we dont, Motsepe said at the Womens African Cup in Morocco. I focus on commercial and making African football money and this Infantino thing is an old story for me.On Wednesday, Infantino was presented with a large framed picture of Mount Kilimanjaro by Tanzanian Prime Minister Kassim Majaliwa at the general assembly meeting while Motsepe applauded the FIFA president vigorously and cajoled delegates at the meeting to join in the applause.

Nick Kyrgios Beats Top-Ranked Defending Champion Daniil Medvedev in Montreal
08/10/2022 11:23pm

Nick Kyrgios beat top-ranked defending champion Daniil Medvedev 6-7 2, 6-4, 6-2 on Wednesday in the National Bank Open.Krygios, the Australian ranked 37th, won last week in Washington for his seventh ATP Tour title. Medvedev won last week in Los Cabos, Mexico.Today I had a very clean objective of how I was going to play, a lot of serve-and-volley, a lot of aggressive play from the back, Kyrgios said. I executed better than he did, thats all it comes down to. He won the first set and I feel like I had opportunities there as well, so hopefully I can just keep this rolling.Kyrgios is 3-1 against Medvedev and has won 14 of 15 matches, with the loss coming to Novak Djokovic in the Wimbledon final.He played very well, Medvedev said. The only thing that was a shame for me is that I played him so early because he is fit. Hes among the top 10 or 15 players, so he will soon be a seeded player. Its a shame to have such a player as an opponent in the first match.Earlier, American Tommy Paul beat second-seeded Carlos Alcaraz of Spain 6-7 4, 7-6 7, 6-3.I felt the pressure of being the second seed in this tournament and world No. 4, Alcaraz said. Its the first time Ive felt this pressure and I couldnt handle it.Also, fourth-seeded Casper Ruud of Norway beat Alex Molcan of Slovakia 7-6 3, 6-3 sixth-seeded Montrealer Felix Auger-Aliassime edged Japans Yoshihito Nishioka 7-6 6, 6-4 No. 7 Jannik Sinner of Italy topped Adrian Mannarino of France 2-6, 6-4, 6-2 and No. 8 Hubert Hurkacz of Poland beat Emil Ruusuvuori of Finland 6-3, 6-7 4, 6-2.No. 9 Cameron Norrie of Britain beat Botic van de Zandschulp of the Netherlands 6-1, 6-2, and 10th-seeded Taylor Fritz beat fellow American Frances Tiafoe 5-7, 6-1, 6-4.

Best Performers From the 2022 MLS All-Star Game
08/10/2022 11:10pm

Best performers from the 2022 MLS All-Star Game originally appeared on NBC Sports WashingtonMajor League Soccer showed who was the better North American league, yet again, after topping Liga MX 2-1 in Wednesdays All-Star Game.After winning the game against Liga MX in a penalty shootout last year, MLS sealed the deal in regulation time this time around. One goal came from open play while the second came from a penalty thanks to Seattle Sounders Ral Ruidaz. Liga MX got on the scoresheet in the 84th minute.Here are the top performers from the contest in Minnesota:Carlos Vela, LAFCUnsurprisingly, the opening goal scorer kicks off this list. The LAFC forward wasted no time finding the back of the net, scoring a smooth header in just the second minute.It made perfect sense that his teammate, left-back Diego Palacios, set him up with the assist. Vela currently has seven goals and seven assists in 22 league appearances, and he mustve been happy to net the first goal in this game to give his league the win. His night ended early on, though, as he was substituted for Paul Arriola in the 33rd minute so more players could receive game time.Kamal Miller, CF MontralMiller has played an imperative role with CF Montral third place in the Eastern Conference all season long, and he showed that quality in the first half. He made some timely slides that made shot angles tougher for Liga MXs forward, and also came up more often from his center-back role to help the offense.Millers night ended when Aaron Long replaced him for the second half, but Montral should be proud of what their player did as a starter.Dayne St. Clair, Minnesota UnitedThe local player Dayne St. Clair makes a deserved entry into this list. He came on in the 32nd minute for Philadelphia Union goalkeeper Andre Blake, who started the match. St. Clair was tested all throughout the final 13 minutes of the first half, and he did extremely well to sustain MLS 1-0 advantage.Sean Johnson came in for St. Clair in the 61st minute.Kevin lvarez, PachucaLiga MX attempted 20 shots and seven hit the target, but only one went in. That goal came via substitute right-back Kevin lvarez from Pachuca.His hit from outside the box gave Johnson no chance of keeping a clean sheet for MLS. lvarez attempted another long-range hit shortly after, but it didnt produce the same result as this one.Germn Berterame, MonterreyBerterame came on at halftime in place of Avils Hurtado, and though he didnt put his name on the scoring column, he was everywhere on the offensive side of the pitch. One of his attempts from well outside the box nearly went in just seven minutes into his shift, but it drifted just wide of the left post.D.C. United will be hosting the 2023 MLS All-Star Game, though no opponent has been announced yet for that contest.This story uses functionality that may not work in our app. Click here to open the story in your web browser.
