U-20 WAFU: Host nation Togo calls for postponement of tournament
The Federation of Togolese Football (FTF) has called for the postponement of the 2020 WAFU U-20 tournament.
The tournament was scheduled to start on 18 November and ends on 2 December 2020.
The FTF is making this call on the Confederation of African Football (CAF) to postpone the WAFU U-20 tournament due to the surge in the number of the Coronavirus pandemic in the country.
The WAFU U-20 tournament will have served as qualifiers for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Tanzania, which would have in turn determined Africa’s representatives for the 2021 FIFA U-20 World Cup.
The Federation said they will engage WAFU and CAF to find a new date for the competition.
The Black Satellites were in camp preparing for the tournament and will now have to break camp due to the postponement.
