After their decision to withdraw from the 2020 Futsal African Cup of Nations (AfCON) currently being held in Laayoune, South Africa and Mauritius have been heavily sanctioned by CAF. The body fined the two federations $ 75,000 each and suspended the next two editions of the AfCON futsal.
Recall that Mauritius, which had replaced South Africa after its withdrawal for political reasons, decided to leave the tournament even if it participated in the opening match against Equatorial Guinea. The Mauritian selection was also scheduled to play its second match Thursday against Libya.
“Mauritius’ decision will not affect the tournament or the scheduling of matches. Pending the sanction of CAF, the selections that were to face Mauritius will have three victory points,” said a source from FRFM.
