CAF postpones 2021 AFCON final draw

The Africa Cup of Nations tournament will be staged in Cameroon from January 9 to February 6 next year, a Confederation of African Football (CAF) official confirmed on Thursday.

The draw for the Africa Cup of Nations finals has been postponed by the Confederation of African Football (CAF).

Caf said on Sunday that the draw set for Yaounde on June 25 has been postponed because of “logistical reasons related to the Covid-19 pandemic”.

A new date will be announced in due course, Caf added.

Sierra Leone and Benin play their outstanding qualifier this month to determine the last of the 24 teams in the finals in Cameroon in January.

The tournament has already been put back a year because of the pandemic.

CAF last month postponed the resumption of World Cup qualifiers, which had been scheduled for the opening weeks of June, blaming the Covid-19 pandemic.

Ghana will be represented in Cameroon early next year after Black Stars secured qualification in March.
