2016 Africa Futsal Cup of Nations

The Total Africa Futsal Cup of Nations, (known as the African Futsal Championship until 2015 and now named Total CAF Super Cup for sponsorship reasons) is the main national futsal competition of the Confederation of African Football nations. It was first held in 1996 and has been played every four years. It is a qualification to FIFA Futsal World Cup.

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