CAF emergency organizing Committee has cancelled out the Total U-17 African Championships which has been slated to kick start on 13th March to 31st 2021 in Rabat, Morocco.
The Committee was made aware of the constraints faced by some of the participating member associations as well as the host country including the fact that the coronavirus pandemic continues to present significant challenges for the organization of international sporting events.
Taking into account the cancellation by FIFA of the Under-17 World Cup for which the U-17 CAN was no longer qualifying, the Committee further noted:
• The resurgence of the Covid19 pandemic.
• Increased restrictions on international travel
• Uncertainty about the evolution of the situation
Uganda Cubs (U-17 national) had already travelled to Morocco for start early preparations for the tournament but all hit dead end as they are set to fly back into the country.
