Wikipedia:WikiProject Football/Africa task force

Welcome to the Africa task force of WikiProject Football. This task force is dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage of association football in Africa.

Attention, task force participants!


The CAF website revamped in 2019, making hyperlinks from articles about all CAF events and competitions from 2014 until the end of that year currently non-reachable, causing Wikipedians like you, I.P. users and WP Bots alike to resort to archived links from the Wayback Machine for preservation. As of 15:08, Friday, July 12, 2024 (UTC), contains this link contains the earliest archived info page about events on 29 January 2013 which could be very useful here on WP going foward. Since 21 March 2023, this user, Intrisit, has been around articles related or affiliated to this article's topic switching over links currently on related articles here to reflect the changes on the website. This notice will be removed once the link switch-overs are completed. Thanks for your attention. Intrisit (talk) 15:00, 9 April 2023 (UTC)[reply]
