In a deal covering the 2019 and 2021 editions of AFCON, Visa serves as the exclusive provider of payment services at all AFCON venues as well as the preferred payment option for buying tickets for AFCON matches both online and in-person. Visa is also the official partner of the player escort program, which provides an opportunity to over a thousand kids to be mascots and lead teams out for their AFCON matches.


The Cyprus-based online gambling company serves as an Official Sponsor to AFCON as per the sponsorship deal it signed with CAF in February 2019.
