Cameroon might also not organize AFCON 2021, nothing is certain

“(Business in Cameroon) - We confirm that no official Board decision has been taken. Let’s first deal with the AFCON 2019, the next will follow,”  indicated a document the Confederation of African Football (CAF) sent to the Ivorian Football Federation, according to BBC.

This contrasts a bit with what the head of CAF, Malagasy Ahmad Ahmad (photo), recently told authorities after the withdrawal of Cameroon from the 2019 AFCON organization last November 30. Indeed, he suggested Cameroon will organize the AFCON 2021; giving it enough time to gradually and rationally set up all the required infrastructures, without external pressure, and also complete the peace process kicked off in crisis-affected regions (northwest and southwest).

As a reminder, this suggestion raised strong reaction from the Ivorian Football Federation, which immediately referred the matter to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) against CAF, whose President assumed that preparations were not going well in Côte d'Ivoire, 3 years before the competition (AFCON 2021) starts.
