The confederation of African Football just announced yesterday the postponement of the Africa Cup of Nations until 2022, which was scheduled in 2021.

“After consultation with stakeholders and taking into consideration the current global situation, the tournament has been rescheduled for January 2022. The date for the final tournament and the remaining matches of the qualifiers will be communicated in due course,” a statement read on the CAF website.

The CAF executive committee held a meeting on Tuesday to discuss the fate of the competition amid the outbreak of the virus.

“This decision was taken due to the uncertainties about the coronavirus health situation and especially because of the scheduling problems since four rounds of qualifiers would need to be fitted into the October and November windows for international matches,” CAF President Ahmad Ahmad told a news conference after the meeting.
