French pay-TV group Canal+ has struck a deal with The African Football Confederation over all the exclusive rights to African football senior men competitions.

Canal+ will then offer several meetings on affiliate channels Canal+, Canal+ Sport, Sport+ and Foot+ including the African Cup of Nations 2013 and 2015, and The African Nations Championship. Some opening and closing matches will be co-hosted with free TV affiliate channel D8.
