AfCON 2019: Morocco banned from training in Al Salam stadium

The national team starts the African Cup of Nations (AfCON) Sunday against Namibia. The band Hervé Renard was denied the right to practice on the lawn of Al Salam stadium, which will host this meeting.

The organizing committee of the competition told the technical staff that players are only allowed to inspect the lawn.

Normally, each nation performs a training session the day before its match to become familiar with the conditions and grass. But, apparently, this is not part of the plans of the organizing committee of the 32nd edition of the African Cup that is played in Egypt.

The organizers made this decision not to spoil the lawns of the grounds that house the tournament. Morocco has only one option: continue training at Haras El-Hedood stadium.
