Morocco withdraws from hosting 2015 Afcon due to Ebola

BLANTYRE (Maravipost)–Morocco has finally withdrawn from hosting the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations due to prevalent fear of Ebola, which has ravaged a number of African nations over the last few months.

Morocco last week requested the Confederation of African Football (CAF) to postpone the tournament due to the fear of Ebola, which is said to be spreading across its territories but CAF rejected the proposal.

They requested that the Nations Cup be moved to 2016 or the 2015 hosting rights be given to another country and that the 2017 edition be reserved for them.

But CAF rejected all the requests, forcing the country to pull out of the tournament.

Morocco will likely be sanctioned with all its clubs and national teams banned from continental activities until the regulatory body decide otherwise.

Meanwhile, South Africa is tipped as the host of 2015 Afcon after South Africa Football Association (SAFA) President Danny Jordan met with CAF’s committee to discuss the matter.

2015 Afcon is scheduled to take place between January 17th to February 8th 2015.
