Official: CAF Disqualifies Morocco From 2015 AFCON



The Confederation of African Football, CAF at a meeting in Cairo on  Tuesday has decided to drop Morocco as host of next year’s Africa Cup of Nations and the national side was flung out of the competition.

CAF announced its decision after a careful consideration of host Morocco’s request to postpone the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations tournament because of the Ebola epidemic, possibly leading to its cancellation or relocation.

A CAF statment said that other countries had indicated a willingness to host the tournament and that it will “finalize the selection of the successful National Association shortly and confirm the place and date of the draw of the final tournament at the same time.”

The federation’s executive Nations Committee began the two day meeting at its headquarters in Cairo, and could announce its decision on Tuesday or Wednesday.
