G2021 Africa Cup of Nations Likely To Be Postponed - CAF Official Hints

ModernghanaJun 29, 2020Read original

Executive Committee member of CAF, Hany Abo Rida has revealed that the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) is likely to be postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The 33rd edition of Africa's prestigious tournament has been scheduled to take place on 9 January, 2021 in Cameroon.

However, Africa's football governing body has been forced to postpone three rounds of qualifiers until further notice and that has put the tournament under threat after two matches played.

Rida, former chairman of the Egyptian Football Association, spoke ahead of CAF's video conference on Tuesday, 30 June, 2020 to discuss the way forward amid the coronavirus pandemic

"All scenarios are on the table after the competition’s suspension because of the coronavirus pandemic," he told a television programme late on Saturday.

"The 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon will likely be postponed, as the African national teams have not completed the rounds of the qualifiers."

Rida also revealed there is plan to play the remainder of the CAF Champions League in a tournament format.

"There is a suggestion that the remaining games of the CAF Champions League be played in a complex tournament on neutral ground," he added.
