Investigation into the Agreements concluded by the Confederation of African Football and Lagardere Sports SAS

The COMESA Competition Commission (the “Commission”) wishes to inform its stakeholders and the general public that an article published on the e-COMESA Newsletter on 10th May 2020, has erroneously stated that the Commission has banned the agreement between Confederation Africaine de Football (“CAF”) and Lagardere Sports S.A.S (“Lagardere Sports”).

The Commission wishes to clarify that the investigation relating to the agreements concluded between CAF and Lagardere Sports for the commercialization of media and marketing rights of football events is still ongoing. There has been no decision up to date made by either the Committee responsible for Initial Determination or the Board of the Commission.
