🇲🇦 Morocco's participation in CHAN 2020 in doubt as they cancel training camp

Morocco's defence of the African Nations Championships (CHAN) title is in doubt after they cancelled a training camp amid coronavirus pandemic.

The North African nation was scheduled to go into residential camp at the Mohammed VI Football Complex in Maâmoura, Salé but the Moroccan Football Federation (FRMF) announced that the camp will not take place.

The decision came as Morocco grapples with Covid-19 outbreak that has infected at least 29 with no deaths yet. The country's authorities have also suspended sporting activities till April. 

Media reports indicate that the country will officially withdraw from CHAN 2020 after an emergency federation meeting that was to take place on Monday.

The sixth edition of CHAN is scheduled to run from April 4 to 25 in the four Cameroonian cities of Yaounde, Douala, Limbe and Beula.

Rwanda on Sunday officially withdrew from the tournament as CAF comes under intense pressure to either cancel the tournament or postpone as more countries report confirmed cases of coronavirus infections. 

The virus that has infected at least 174, 000 and killed at least 6,500 people has disrupted global sporting calendar with numerous leagues, tournaments and meets cancelled or postponed.
