CAF: Three Countries Pull Out Of 2021/2022 Inter-Club Competitions


When actions starts in the 2021/2022 season of the CAF inter-club competitions, some countries will surely be missing out.

The African soccer governing body in May announced June 31st deadline for the submission of teams that will play in the competition by the member association.

But the football governing body had to change the date to end of July after large member nations pleaded for more time because their leagues is yet to reach a logical conclusion.

The reports coming from CAF headquarters in Cairo on Sunday suggests that 3 countries – Lesotho, Cape Verde and Mauritius has sent their letter of withdrawal to the football governing body.

Nigeria still has 5 match days to end the league and Aiteo Cup is still in the quarter final stage.

Some other Africa countries have few match days to go but it remained unseen if CAF will shift the date.
