U17 Africa Cup of Nations Cancelled (CAF)
Rabat – The 2021 U17 Total Africa Cup of Nations, which was initially scheduled to take place in Morocco on March 13-31, has been cancelled, the Confederation of African Football (CAF) announced on Monday.
The announcement was made following a meeting in Rabat of the CAF Emergency Committee.
“The Committee was made aware of the constraints faced by some of the participating member associations as well as the host country including the fact that the coronavirus pandemic continues to present significant challenges for the organization of international sporting events,” CAF said in a press release.
Taking into account the cancellation by FIFA of the Under-17 World Cup for which the U-17 CAN was no longer qualifying, the Committee further noted the resurgence of the Covid19 pandemic, increased restrictions on international travel and uncertainty about the evolution of the situation.
“For all these reasons, the Committee decided to cancel the 2021 edition of the Total U17 Africa Cup of Nations,” CAF said.
