πŸ‡²πŸ‡± πŸ‡ΏπŸ‡² πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¬ Uganda postpones CHAN 2020 build up tournament

The Tri-Nations friendly tournament that was to be hosted by Uganda and was to involve Zambia and Mali has been postponed as the coronavirus pandemic sweeps across Africa. 

FUFA has been forced to postpone the tournament that was to run from Tuesday through Saturday after advice from the country's Ministry of Health. The Federation tweeted that the tournament has been pushed to March 24 to 28.

Zambia was already in Uganda ready to kick off the tournament while Mali hadn't communicated their response yet. The three teams were using the tournament as a part of their African Nations Championships preparations (CHAN).

The sixth edition of CHAN is scheduled to take place from April 4 to 25 in Cameroon. 

Uganda, Zambia and Mali are yet to report cases of positive Covid-19 infection but 29 African countries have reported 289 cases with six deaths.

CAF has come 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 6,600 people has disrupted global sporting calendar with numerous leagues, tournaments and meets cancelled or postponed.
