The training covers various aspects such as CAF stadiums regulatory framework, stadium inspection guidelines, pitch quality, lighting, safety and security measures, as well as media and TV facilities.

The candidates will undergo theoretical and practical training, including stadium visits, under the guidance of CAF Departmental Heads.

They will be evaluated on their ability to assess stadium pitch quality, seating capacity, safety measures, lighting, medical facilities, and media capabilities necessary for CAF competitions.
