Although this has not been confirmed or refuted by CAF, all indications point to Aiteo as the new sponsor of the CAF Awards.
CAF appears to be cutting ties with Globacom, who have been the title sponsor of the awards since 2005 by embracing Aiteo another Nigerian company as it’s sponsor.
Aiteo, who in April 2017 signed an N2.5bn (about $6million)/5-year deal with the Nigeria football Federation basically to cover coaches salary followed that up with a separate 5-year deal as title sponsors of the Federations cup ( the equivalent of the English FA Cup) which had been without a Sponsor since 2009.
Aiteo, however, announced via Twitter their latest football sponsorship, this time with the African football governing body accompanied with a picture of newly elected CAF President, Ahmad Ahmad.
