Total and African football

Our partnership with CAF

Total and CAF signed a multi-year sponsorship deal in 2016[1], making the Total Group, the partner of African football for eight years. Following the agreement signed in October 2016, Total became the title sponsor of 10 competitions—seven national competitions and three inter-club competitions, starting with the Total Africa Cup of Nations held in Gabon in 2017.

Total African Nations Championship

The Total African Nations Championship (CHAN Total) is a biennial football tournament contested by 16 qualifying African national teams. The teams are composed exclusively of players who play in their countries’ national leagues. First held in 2009, the tournament has been held during even-numbered years since 2014 and has become a showpiece tournament of African football.
