CAF May Postpone AFCON 2023

 

AFCON 2021 Third-Place Final Rescheduled - CAF

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) on Wednesday revealed that it is considering postponing the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

CAF has earlier scheduled the tournament to hold in Cote d’Ivoire next summer.

The football governing body is considering shifting the 2023 AFCON over harsh weather conditions in the West African country.

CAF authorities who have seen the condition weather this summer believes it might be the same next summer and scheduling the competition in the middle of the rainy season might not be a good idea.

CAF Secretary General, Veron Mosengo-Omba while speaking with Le Monde said, “We are considering it; it is one of the possibilities.

“We asked Ivorian meteorologists to report to us on rainfall history in Côte d’Ivoire in June and July, but also to share their projections with us.”

The last AFCON in Cameroon was won by the Teranga Lions of Senegal.
