The two legged women’s olympic playoff match between Cameroon and Chili earlier scheduled to be played in April will no longer take place due to the concerns of the Covid-19 pandemic plaguing the sports world.

The doubleheader between the African giants and the 2018 Copa America Women’s Cup runners-up was initially scheduled to be a home-and-away two-legged tie to be played on 9 and 15 April 2020.

However, the Covid-19 outbreak has brought football activities to a standstill globally. The pandemic has affected 163 countries, including Cameroon and Chile with varying numbers of positive cases.

On Tuesday March 17th, 2020, the World Football Governing Body, FIFA, announced the decision to temporarily place the playoff on hold in a bid to avoid further health risks and challenges to the teams.

The new date for the doubleheader, will be announced later.
