After the COVID-19 Pandemic hitting all sporting activities across the world, reigning champions Morocco has canceled their Total CHAN 2020 camp.
The North African nation went on to also announce their withdrawal from the CHAN 2020 which is slated in April.
A week before Morocco’s withdrawal, CAF had issued a statement regarding this matter. In addition, stating that all its competitions will go on behind closed doors despite the Coronavirus Pandemic situation.
However, days after, it suspended all the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations Qualifiers.
The 2020 African Nations Championship (CHAN 2020) had to kick off on the 4th of April 2020 until the 25th of April 2020 in Cameroon.
The Africa giants announced their decision and have already written to the Confederation of African Football over the matter.
They were drawn in Group C with Uganda, West African side Togo and Rwanda.
On March 15th hosting country Cameroon reported their fifth case of Coronavirus which scared other countries like Morocco.
Not only this, but 12 out of the supposedly participating 16 countries have also reported cases of Coronavirus as well.
CAF is currently assessing the situation to decide whether to proceed without spectators or announce the suspension of the CHAN 2020 tournament.
