CAF’s executive committee met in an online conference on Tuesday and decided to postpone the final to January/February 2022 in Cameroon. The executive also made decisions regarding other competitions.
The 2020 Women’s AFCON will not be played this year. The decision to scrap the tournament this year is to make way for the launch of the African Women’s Champions League in 2021.
Regarding inter-club competitions, the CAF Champions League and Confederation Cup semi-finals will no longer be contested over two-legs for home and away fixtures. CAF Champions League semi-finals will be held in Cameroon, in September, while the CAF Confederation Cup will be hosted in Morocco.
The decision by CAF will likely result in a pile-up of fixtures as there are still four rounds of AFCON qualifiers to play.
On Monday, CAF released a 27-page document titled “CAF Guidelines to Resume Football in Africa”. The document is meant to guide the Member Associations on the restart of football activities on the African continent.
The plan also highlights effective and continuous medical assessment (testing) of players and officials, guidelines for training sessions, disinfection of sporting facilities, as well as strict adherence to the global preventive protocols.
