CAF boss Ahmad rules out 2020 CHAN in June as doubts over finals grow

CAF president Ahmad Ahmad has confirmed the 2020 African Nations Championship (CHAN) finals will not be played in Cameroon during June/July.

This has put the future of the tournament in doubt after the continent's football governing body postponed it because of the coronavirus outbreak.

Ahmad told the French newspaper Le Monde: ''Our desire is to play all competitions including, of course, the African Nations Championship.

"It is obviously too early to decide whether we will play it in 2020 or 2021.

The only thing that seems obvious is that CHAN will not be able to take place in Cameroon in June and July, due to weather conditions."

Cameroon was scheduled to host the tournament from 4-25 April, 2020.
