Formed way back in 1962, not much is known in terms of sponsorship details. However, the country is the haven for most African players – especially from West Africa – as most the North African countries pay huge salaries due to revenues generated from oil wealth. Top clubs like Al Hilal and El Merreikh have in recent times been performing brilliantly in continental competitions and this is as a result of improvements in wages and welfare of players.
Leagues all across most North African countries like Morrocco, Algeria and even Libya despite the friction, have over the years been much organized. Also, Cote d Ivoire’s Premier League, as well as theLinafoot in DR Congo, is worthy of a mention and this has reflected in the way teams from these countries have dominated continental competitions.
