2017 Africa U-17 Cup of Nations

The Total U-17 Africa Cup of Nations (previously known as the African U-17 Championship) is a bi-annual football competition organised by the sport's African governing body, CAF. The competition has been held since 1995. Between 1985 and 1993 only qualifying competitions for the FIFA U-17 World Cup were played.

On 6 August 2015, the CAF Executive Committee decided to change the name of the tournament from the African U-17 Championship to the U-17 Africa Cup of Nations, similar to the senior's version, Africa Cup of Nations.[1]

In July 2016, Total has secured an eight-year sponsorship package from the Confederation of African Football (CAF) to support 10 of its principal competitions, including the U-17 Africa Cup of Nations Champions, renamed Total U-17 Africa Cup of Nations.[2]
