The real African Confederation for eSports -CAeS

The Confederation of African eSports (CAeS) was founded in 2008.

Under the  Presidency of  Mohammed Saad (of Egypt), the confederation has grown from just three countries to represent six countries.

The six countries are Egypt, Ghana, Namibia,  South Africa, Tunisia, and Zimbabwe.
Currently there are also applications from Nigeria, Lesotho and Botswana which  are being processed.

But what is the purpose of having such a confederation?

The most  important feature is that  the confederation is a non-profit association, so as such, it could one  day be admitted  into membership of ANOC.

More than that, as a non-profit association, it  is not owned by anyone. Thus what it does is for the benefit of the sport and not for any one person's profit.
Only National Federation's that are also non-profit organisations may affiliate.

Many National Federations use their affiliation to CAeS to prepare themselves to affiliate to the International e-Sports Federation (IeSF).

The confederation too is able  to mobilise support for esports throughout the African continent, and develop Africa's vast untapped potential.
