Confederation of African Football's website uses picture of Shea Stadium

Friday November 14th, 2014

The Confederation of African Football has a lot of things to worry about right now. After Morocco refused to host the African Cup of Nations due to the West African Ebola outbreak, CAF was left scrambling to find a new host for the January tournament. So, you'll forgive them if they've been paying less attention to the little things, like website design. 

Sam Borden, a reporter for The New York Times, points out that the background for CAF's website is a picture of Shea Stadium. No, seriously.

This seems unbelievable, but you can clearly see the baseball diamond. The colors of the seats in the different levels are also the same

CAF is one of six continental federations which form FIFA, and yet they can't think to give their website a background related to either soccer or Africa. If you're going to use a shot of a stadium, why not use one from the 2010 World Cup, which was hosted in Africa?
