Cameroon will not host the mini-tournament to decide the 2020 African Champions League winners, the country has announced.
Last month, after assessing the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on African football, Caf said the semi-finals and final would be played in a “Final Four” format in September.
A recent spike in coronavirus cases has prompted Cameroon to turn down the chance to host the matches.
At the time of writing, Cameroon has recorded 14,916 cases with 11,525 recoveries and 359 deaths.
“I have informed Caf of our decision to decline hosting the 2020 Caf Champions League ‘Final Four’ after failure to secure government’s backing to host the prestigious event,” Fecafoot President Mbombo Njoya said. (BBC)
