Still another tournament was postponed as a result of coronavirus. The African Nations Cup won’t be held in 2021. 1 year after, the struggle for the supremacy of Southern African soccer will start in January 2022. Ahmed Ahmed, president of this company, stated, “Soccer was closed in most continents since last March to reduce coronavirus disease. In this circumstance, the Nations Cup also dropped behind.
The Nations Cup was scheduled to be held from January 9 to February 8 next year. One year later, the tournament will be held in January 2022. Ahmed said, ‘There was no other way because of the Corona situation. We also had to think about the matches of the qualifying round. First of all, the health aspect of the footballers has to be seen.
Reigning champions Algeria lost to Senegal by a single goal in 2019. The Africa Cup of Nations for men as well as women has been postponed by a year.
There will also be the Nations Cup in 2023. The CAF has not decided whether it will be reversed.
Meanwhile, the semi-finals and finals of this year’s African Champions League will be held in Cameroon.
