PICKALBATROS Hotels & Resorts Chairman, Mr. Kamel Abou Aly said: “Hosting the CAF Awards is great promotion for Egypt and an ode to football in Egypt after its successful hosting of the CAF AFCON. This signing ceremony represents a great opportunity to promote Egypt’s beautiful Red Sea region and we look forward to welcoming the football family to our iconic city.”
CAF President Mr. Ahmad Ahmad said: “We are very much looking forward to seeing the CAF Awards take place here in the Albatross Citadel resort in Hurghada. I’m certain that our guests will talk as much about the location, on the shores of the Red Sea, as they will the awards. The CAF Awards are an important event for African football and allow us to honour the most talented and inspiring male and female players from across our great continent. This year we will introduce some new awards to recognize and celebrate some exceptional contributions to African football and inspiring individuals which we at CAF are very excited about.”
