New African Football League starts – level 1

24-10-2023 15:00

There is a new football league in Africa. It is called the African Football League.

The league begins in Tanzania with eight teams. Simba plays against Al Ahly. The score is 2-2. The teams will play again in Cairo. The league is not exactly like what FIFA President Gianni Infantino wants in the beginning. He wants a bigger tournament with more prize money. But the league is different. It is like a short competition which lasts only 17 days. Each team gets 1 million dollars. The winner gets 4 million dollars. Only one sponsor, Visit Saudi, helps with the league. The league may get bigger next year. But for now, it is like a small tournament.

Difficult words: tournament (a series of games or matches between several players or teams), competition (an event when players or teams want to be better than the other players or teams), sponsor (a person or organization that pays for a sporting or artistic event).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
