Baffoe leading officials and teams onto the pitch during the FIFA Club World Cup Quarter Final match between Kashiwa Reysol and Club de Futbol Monterrey
Ex Ghana international Anthony Baffoe has been appointed the general co-ordinator for the opening game of the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations.
The 46-year-old will direct affairs throughout the opening ceremony and the game itself between co-host Equatorial Guinea and Libya in Bata on Saturday.
The ex FC Koln defender has distinguished himself in the general co-ordination role in high profile Fifa and Caf tournaments and has been duly rewarded with taking charge of the opening of Africa’s biggest football showpiece.
Baffoe who is also a member of Fifa and Caf Football Committees will also oversee all group games being played at the Bata venue.
He recently discharged a similar role during the Fifa Club World Cup in Japan which received raving reviews.
