CAF brings together team of experts to design Safety and Security training modules

Today CAF kicked off a two-day workshop which brought together it’s eight-member CAF Safety and Security Experts Panel to brainstorm and design safety and security training modules.

The Panel is composed of experts representing each of the six zones within the Confederation of African Football, who along with the assistance of FIFA, will identify key themes and areas of focus for the safety and security training modules.

At the heart of discussions was the necessity to strengthen the skillsets of safety and security officers at each of CAF’s 54 member associations so that they possess strong knowledge, are highly trained and confident in order to best execute safety and security operations during football matches.

Addressing the participants at the workshop CAF’s Deputy General Secretary Anthony Baffoe highlighted the importance of having a curriculum for Safety and Security that will allow the imparting of professional skills and knowledge to all stakeholders.

This workshop is extremely important for CAF as we are committed to improving safety and security in stadia across our continent. I believe that creating a curriculum for safety and security will be of tremendous benefit to all of CAF’s 54 Member Associations, who are already strongly committed to improving the safety and security of football fans, players and officials during matches.
