CAF moves World Cup qualifiers start date to September

Harambee Stars

Harambee Stars will have to wait until September to begin their Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers after FIFA and CAF moved the start date from June.

A statement from CAF reads, "The CAF Emergency Committee, in consultation with FIFA, decided to postpone the CAF qualifiers that were due to be played in June 2021 after taking into consideration the current challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, and the need to ensure the optimal playing conditions for all participating teams. The qualifiers will now take place in the existing windows of September, October and November 2021, and March 2022.

CAF is reassessing its protocols and processes to enhance the implementation of COVID-related protocols, including specifically focusing on pre-match testing which had been the source of some challenges in previous windows."
