CHAN deemed a success despite negative impact of Covid


On Sunday, the largest tournament featuring international teams to be played since the coronavirus pandemic began ended as Morocco won the African Nations Championship (CHAN) on Cameroonian soil.

The tournament for players based in their domestic African leagues featured 16 teams and four stadiums in three different cities: Douala, Limbe and Yaounde.

One of the major threats was of course Covid-19 and although all but three delegations were affected by the virus, not only did the teams play all their games but there were no delays to matches either.

Before the tournament, Fifa president Gianni Infantino said it was “important to show to the world we can organise such games in Cameroon, in Africa, to give hope to the world that 2021 will see normality come back.”
