The development of African football cannot be dissociated from the socio-economic growth of the continent, according to the president of the Confederation of African Football, Patrice Motsepe. This means not only focusing on football, but on everything around it. For example, the deployment of the mobile network is a major challenge. Indeed, the coverage on the continent is very heterogeneous and many countries have set about the task of having at least 4G coverage throughout their territory. Why? To make football accessible to everyone, from everyw.: to allow people to watch a match live on their phone and to experience matches even more intensely thanks to sports betting Tanzania. It also means modernising the infrastructure or building new ones.
