The Emergency Committee of Confederation of African Football, CAF has approved resumption dates for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers and the Africa qualifying group stage of 2022 FIFA World Cup.
This means a busy schedule awaits the participating teams, with double-headers from November 2020 through to November 2021 in the battle for spots to the final tournament of the two competitions.
The timetables for the two competitions have had to be revised in light of the COVID-19 outbreak which halted many sports activities across the continent and beyond for some time.
For Cameroon 2021, the qualifiers will hold from 9 to 17 November, 2020 with the Day 3 and Day 4 matches, while the penultimate and ultimate matches take place from 22 to 30 March, 2021. While Qatar 2022 will commence the journey between May 31 and June 15, 2021 with the Day 1 and Day 2 matches.
However, CAF said it is monitoring the situation and working with the relevant authorities with regards to hosting of the matches, and would make pronouncements accordingly.
