CAF Gives August 31 Deadline For Federations To Submit Inter-Club Teams
The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has given an August 31 deadline for its federations to submit their representatives for the inter-club competitions – the CAF Champions League and the CAF Confederation Cup.
According to information obtained from kickoff, the decision was in line with CAF’s decision to start both competitions in October.
So far, only 27 African nations have known their representatives. Over 90% of the representatives so far have been obtained from national championships that were abandoned following the outbreak of the Coronavirus pandemic in Africa in the month of March.
This request from CAF mandates countries still planning to persuade the continuation of their national championships before the above-mentioned deadline.
Meanwhile, as at the last count, Tunisia, Egypt and Morocco make up a number of countries still on a mission to conclude the current campaign on the pitch, though they may not have sufficient time to conclude the competitions.
The CAF Champions League and Confederation cup current season have been suspended in the semifinal stage since the outbreak of the pandemic in March with six games left.
