La grand-messe CAN 2002 : enjeux économiques, politiques et sanitaires d’une compétition de football

Abstract : In 1998, the Confederation of African Football awarded the organization of the 23rd edition of the Africa Cup of Nations to Mali. The “CAN objective” set by the authorities was a large-scale project which initiated a dynamic in which all sectors of society were in theory called to participate. With the recent but fragile democratic opening of the 1990s, this sports event appeared as a new challenge and a great tool of modernization. The objective stated in the short term by the steering committee was twofold, ambitious, but opaque; it was a question of improving the everyday lives of Malians and the image of the country abroad in order to attract investors and visitors. The author will attempt to highlight the dysfunctions and the key contributions generated by the event to understand better what the real impact was.
