In addition to this, there will be Club Championship Player of the Year, Young Player of the Year, National Team of the Year, Coach of the Year, Club of the Year and Goal of the Year.
Winners will be determined by voting by the captain and coach of each of the member associations, some journalists, CAF’s technical committee, and CAF legends.
Prizes are awarded based on the period from September 2021 to June 2022.
