The wheels that led to the birth of CAF were actually set in motion outside Africa, in Lisbon, Portugal in June 1956. The Portuguese capital was playing host to the FIFA Congress, and it was the four African nations in attendance (Egypt, Sudan, Ethiopia and South Africa) who carried the African confederation to the baptismal font by taking advantage of that gathering to discuss matters of common interest.
The four nations agreed to meet again in Khartoum, Sudan, in February 1957 after the FIFA Congress in Lisbon to prepare laws and discuss the organization of the inaugural Africa Cup of Nations. At a momentous conference conducted on February 8th, 1957 at the Grand Hotel in Khartoum, CAF was formally established.
