Caf reflects on the upcoming AFCON and COVID-related protocols

Caf believes the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon is going to be successful.

The Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON), which was delayed due to Covid-19, is set to take place in Cameroon from January 9 to February 6.

Reflecting on the upcoming tournament, The Confederation of African Football (Caf) stated that strict coronavirus protocols will be in place and needed measurements have been taken.

“Dr Patrice Motsepe (Caf president) held a very constructive and fruitful meeting with the President of the Republic of Cameroon, His Excellency Mr Paul Biya, in Yaoundé, Cameroon on Tuesday,”

Caf said.

“Dr Motsepe emphasized the importance of the collaboration between the government of Cameroon, Caf and other stakeholders in implementing Covid-19 global best practices at all the stadiums, training pitches, hotels and all the areas where the players, match officials, spectators and visitors will be during the Africa Cup of Nations. This is particularly important in light of the Omicron variant.

“Good progress has been made over the past few months in Cameroon with the construction of stadium infrastructure, training pitches and other facilities for the hosting of the Nations Cup.”
