The ravaging Covid-19 bites harder on sports this weekend as the Confederation of African Football (CAF) had to announce the indefinite postponements of its two flagship clubs competitions, the Champions League and the Confederation Cup.

Both are already in the semi final stages and the inaugural one-match finals for the two competitions were originally scheduled to hold next month.

The Confederation Cup final match was to be held on 24 May 2020 at the Prince Moulay Abdellah Sports Stadium in Rabat, Morocco.


That of the Champions League was to follow a week after on 29 May 2020 at the newly built Japoma Stadium in Douala, Cameroon.

According to CAF, the new dates will be communicated as soon as the Covid-19 is put under control.

It further announced that it 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.
