Orange has announced that it is once again the official partner of the Orange Africa Cup of Nations 2013 which is about to kick off in Johannesburg, South Africa.

In addition to its role as sponsor, the event is even more relevant to Orange as six of the competing teams come from countries where the group operates its own network, including Côte d'Ivoire, Niger, Mali, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Tunisia and Morocco.

Orange will also offer a variety of digital services on mobile phones, for which it has rights to exclusive content, and on the Web via its portal.

Orange has been a dedicated supporter of football in countries in which it is present, and it currently sponsors national teams in Cameroon, Senegal, Guinea, Mali, Niger, the Central African Republic, Botswana and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

Orange is also the principal sponsor of the six major CAF competitions.
