 The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has this evening announced the cancellation of the U-17 Africa Cup of nations (Afcon).

Uganda Cubs team arrived in Morocco last week ahead of the tournament which was slated to run March 13-31st in three towns in Morocco.

But after an CAF emergence meeting today in Morocco, the tournament has been cancelled. CAF has made it clear that more details will be communicated.

The development comes after Moroccan authorities had earlier  cast a big doubt over hosting the tournament because of  the advanced Coronavirus concerns.

Besides Uganda Cubs, the other teams that had already arrived in Morocco include; Tanzania, Zambia and Senegal. Twelve teams had qualified to feature in the tournament.

In 2015 Morocco backed out of hosting the Africa Cup of Nations due to the outbreak of the Ebola virus is some west African countries. Equatorial Guinea went on to host the 2015 Afcon.
