The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has postponed the draw for the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament that will take place in Cameroon next year.

The draw was scheduled to have come on on June 25 but CAF has announced via statement that they have rescheduled it and will announce a new date in due course.

“At the request of CAF, the Cameroon Local Organizing Committee (LOC) has agreed to postpone the TotalEnergies Africa Cup of Nations Cameroon 2021 final draw for logistical reasons related to the Covid-19 pandemic” the statement read.

“The draw was initially scheduled for 25 June 2021 and a new date will be announced in due course.

“CAF continues to work together with its partners, the Cameroon government and the LOC with the objective of making the TotalEnergies Africa Cup of Nations Cameroon 2021 a successful event and a great celebration of African football.”

The Afcon was initially expected to be played this year but due to the Coronavirus pandemic, it will now take place next year in Cameroon.
