Under the agreement, Standard Bank will be a sponsor of the Orange Africa Cup of Nations event from 2010 to 2016, as well as other CAF properties that include the Orange CAF Confederations Cup and the Orange CAF Champions League.
The decision to partner with CAF over an eight year period was driven by Standard Bank’s growing presence as a leading emerging markets bank on the African continent.
“It is appropriate that Standard Bank, which has an association with Africa that stretches for almost 150 years and has the largest presence in Africa of any financial institution, should be a key sponsor of African football,’ said Clive Tasker, CEO of Standard Bank Africa.
“We are proud to be able to have a long-standing commitment to CAF which showcases Africa’s accomplishments in the sport through tournaments that attract continental and global audiences. It is because of our desire to make meaningful connections with the communities in which we operate across the continent that we have become a sponsor of the Orange Africa Cup of Nations event until 2016.
Standard Bank will also be offering customers across Africa the chance to take part in the “Open, Use and Win” competition. The competition will offer people opening accounts a chance to compete for a grand prize of an all expenses paid trip for a lucky fan and partner to the 2010 event. Monthly draws for hampers of footballing merchandise and cash prizes will add to the excitement as the kick off in Luanda looms larger in all fans’ calendars.           
This will ensure that football fans across the continent will become part of the action in Angola and be involved in the tournaments to be staged in Luanda, Cabinda, Benguela, and Lubango.
