Published on: 21 November 2019

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) and host nation Cameroon will decide on the start and end dates for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament. 

Cameroon were awarded the hosting rights after they were replaced by Egypt as host of this year's tournament. CAF decision to take the hosting rights from Cameroon was due to delays in preparations for the tournament and security concerns.

According to a statement on CAF website, due to meteorological issues, the dates of the tournament will be decided jointly by CAF and the host country.

The CAF administration will now decide the dates, times and venues of matches after analysis of the opinions of the teams concerned.

The qualifiers for the tournament started this month. Black Stars won all their two games and sit top of Group C.

The qualifiers will continue next year June.
