The president of the Confederation of African Football, CAF Ahmad Ahmad has announced that the 2020 CAF Awards has been canceled, kick442.com can report.
CAF took the decision during its Executive Committee meeting on Tuesday, June 30, 2020, as announced by the Malagasy.
“Good afternoon to everyone and welcome to this press conference. I am particularly thinking about those whose families have been affected by the Corona Virus pandemic. We meet today from a distance. The last time we met was to celebrate the prestigious CAF Awards. Unfortunately the next edition has been canceled,” president Ahmad revealed.
The cancellation means Asisat Oshoala and Sadio Mane who won the Elite Men’s and Women’s Awards for 2019 earlier this year will stay on the thrown for a little longer.
The decision is one of many decisions that the highest football institution in Africa has taken this Tuesday including postponement of the 2021 AFCON tournament to 2022 and cancelation of the 2020 Women’s competition.
Multiple football events on the continent have been perturbed since the outbreak of the Corona Virus pandemic on the African continent in March this year.
