Following the decision to postpone the semi-finals of the CAF Inter-clubs competitions due to COVID-19, CAF has announced that the finals of the CAF Confederation Cup and CAF Champions League 2019/2020 have been put on hold until further notice.
The Confederation Cup final was set for May 24 at Prince Moulay Abdellah Sports Stadium in Rabat, Morocco while the Champions League would have been hosted five days later at Japoma Stadium in Douala, Cameroon.
According to the statement on the CAF website, the new schedule will be communicated in due time after consultation with various stakeholders.
It added that CAF was monitoring the situation closely and working with relevant authorities including the World Health Organisation.
“CAF is monitoring the situation closely and working with the relevant authorities including the Wealth Health Organization (WHO) on the impact of the virus on the continent, and will announce developments to our competitions at the appropriate time,” the statement said.
Home and away finals were ditched by CAF last year after the second leg of the Champions League final between Wydad Casablanca and Esperance was abandoned in Tunis.
CAF have already suspended the 2021 AFCON qualifiers along with the 2020 CHAN as there are over 19,000 confirmed COVID-19 cases in Africa.
