2021 AFCON is pitching. Scheduled to be played from January 9 to February 6, 2021 in Cameroon, the flagship competition of the African continent could experience a postponement in the coming weeks. The information was revealed by RMC.
According to French media, the African Cup of Nations should be postponed to 2022 either in winter or in summer. Cameroon, the organizing country, would now have doubts about the holding of the competition on the date indicated. If we trust the last outing of the president of Fécafoot Seydou Mbombo Njoya, everything seems.
“The AFCON is scheduled for January 2021, but if we cannot make it to qualifying in September, it is very likely that this date will be postponed,” he told local press last Friday.
“Today, no one can say what will happen in the next few days, how the epidemic will evolve,” he concluded.
2021 AFCON is in the turbulence zone. After the postponement of CHAN 2020, it could also experience the same fate. It is up to CAF to situate sports opinion through an official decision.
