CAF moves 2021 AFCON’s third-place match to Saturday


CAF Organising Committee for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON), on Wednesday, said the competition’s third-place match will now be played a day earlier.

The committee, in a statement at Douala in Cameroon, said the development came after discussions with the Government of Cameroon and the competition’s Local Organising Committee (LOC).

“We decided to move the third and fourth place match, originally scheduled for Sunday February 6 to Saturday February 5,” it said.

The match, which is to be played at the Ahmadou Ahidjo Stadium in Yaounde, will however still kick off at 2000 hours as earlier scheduled.

The committee, however, did not state any reason for bringing the match forward.

The final match will still hold as scheduled on Sunday, the final day of the January 9 to February 6 competition.
