CAF Denies AFCON Postponement

CAF Denies AFCON Postponement

The Confederation of African Football(CAF), has denied they agreed in principle with Morocco to the postponement of the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations, scheduled to be held between January 17 and February 8.

“False! Totally false!” CAF Media Relations Department told AFP on Friday.

The statement was made following reports by Moroccan media that both parties had agreed to postpone the continental event to June 2015 or January 2016 due to the Ebola outbreak in West Africa in a meeting held in Yaoundé between CAF President, Issa Hayatou and a delegation from Morocco on Wednesday.

CAF are expected to issue a final statement on the matter after the meeting of their Executive Committee in Algiers on Sunday 2 November.

Moroccan daily As-Sabah had reported that CAF President Issa Hayatou would be willing to meet the request of the Morroco FA.
