CAF changes AFCON kick off dates
Confederation of African Football (CAF) has changed the set dates for the continent’s football bonanza. The initial kick-off date was June 14th – July 13th 2019.
However, the organizing committee has had the dates delayed by a week so as to accommodate Ramadhan festival that will be on-going during the same period.
Further more, the football bonanza will be hosted in Egypt, a country whose majority observe the Ramadhan Festival and it is believed that in the same time, more activities that will be needed by participants of the football tournament, will have been closed down.
The new dates for the football tournament will now be June 21st to July 19th 2019
