The Confederation of African Football (CAF) is set to decide the fate of its competitions when executives hold an online meeting today.
Football on the continent has been disrupted following the outbreak of the coronavirus, which has claimed over 500,000 lives worldwide.
Caf executives will decide the fate of their flagship competition which is the Africa Cup of Nations. The next edition of the tournament is scheduled to take place in January next year.
However, with six months to go, qualification is far from done as only two rounds of matches have been played. There are four rounds of matches more to play to decide which teams make it to Cameroon.
This season’s Caf inter-club competitions which has been on an indefinite suspension will be discussed. Both the Champions League and Confederation Cup were suspended at the semi-final stage.
There hasn’t been any indication from FIFA that this year’s Club World Cup won’t be held. This means Caf has to find a way to finish the Champions League that will produce a representative for Africa at the world cup.
There is also a decision to be made on the Africa Nations Championship (CHAN) which was supposed to take place in April this year in Cameroon.
A decision must be made on the African Women’s Cup of Nations, scheduled for November but with qualification also far from complete.
Whether to introduce or not the Women’s Caf Champions League will also be discussed in today’s meeting.
