CAF Gives Morocco Deadline To Make Decision On 2015 Nations Cup

share on:

The Confederation of African Football has given Morocco a deadline to decide if they want to host the 2015 African Nations Cup or not.

CAF announced they would be hosting the tournament regardless of Morocco’s Ebola fears, and want a decision made by the 8th of November.

Morocco last month requested from CAF to have the Nations Cup tournament delayed to a latter date, following the outbreak of Ebola Virus Disease on the continent.

But CAF after its executive meeting on Monday, turned down the proposal and has now given Morocco an ultimatum to decide if they want to go ahead with hosting it, or it will be given to another country.

“Since its creation, the ability of CAF to meet its commitments and maintain its competitive time schedules has allowed it to maintain a healthy relationship and trust with its National Associations, their authorities, public, commercial partners and all other international sports organizations,” CAF said in a statement.

“Thus, the Executive Committee of CAF confirms its commitment to keep the competition on the dates indicated (January 17-February 8, 2015), while asking the Royal Moroccan Football Federation to clarify the final position of Morocco not later than 8 November, 2014.

“This time given also applies to all other CAF national associations wishing to organize the competition on the dates agreed as long as the hosting requirements are met.

“A meeting of the Executive Committee will be held 11 November 2014 in Cairo, Egypt to take the necessary decisions.”
