Ethiopia to host the 2020 CAF Annual Congress

Ethiopia’s capital Addis Ababa has been selected to host this year’s Confederation of African Football (CAF) annual congress scheduled for December.

The CAF executive committee reached this decision after FIFA’s 70th Congress which was scheduled for Addis Ababa was impeded by the coronavirus outbreak leading to its cancellation.

FIFA then decided to stage the Congress via videoconferencing on 18 September 2020.

CAF President Ahmad Ahmad confirmed this during a brief meeting with Ethiopia Football Federation President and General Secretary, Mr. Isayas Jira and Mr. Bahiru Tilahun respectively at the VIP salon of Bole International Airport in Addis Ababa.
