CAF Ordinary General Assembly to take place online
The Confederation of African Football (CAF) Ordinary General Assembly will take place via videoconferencing due to the challenges of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
CAF announced today that the Assembly that was scheduled to take place in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia will now take place online on December 11th.
“Following the recommendation of the Medical Committee, CAF Emergency Committee has decided that next month’s session of CAF Ordinary General Assembly will be held via video conference,” said the communication from CAF Communications Director, Alexandre Siewe.
The decision was taken based on an analysis of the figures regarding evolution of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in Africa with the trends heralding the start of a second wave in various parts of the continent.
CAF Emergency Committee aligns with the decision not to lower our guards against the pandemic and to comply with the measures to protect the health of all stakeholders as much as possible. The Assembly will be chaired by the interim CAF President Constant Omari, also the President of the DR Congo Football Federation
