Africa Cup of Nations, African Nations Championship, Africa Women Cup of Nations, Africa U-23 Cup of Nations and Africa U-20 Cup of Nations.

Others are; Africa U-17 Cup of Nations, Africa Beach Soccer Cup of Nations, Africa Fustal Cup of Nations , while the CAF Champions League and the CAF Confederation Cup remains.

Also, the Executive Committee  fixed November 18, 2015 as  the draw  date for the  final tournament of the Orange African Nations Championship, Rwanda 2016.
