The (Council of Southern Africa Football Associations) Cosafa Women’s Under-17 Championship scheduled to be held in Mauritius next month has been postponed due to the spread of Covid-19.

Cosafa announced the decision on Tuesday, to postpone the tournament scheduled for April 17 to 26.

“While we are disappointed that the tournament will be postponed, we are respectful of the decision by the Mauritius government to take appropriate steps to safeguard its citizens during this global crisis,” said Cosafa general secretary Sue Destombes.

“The health of the public, players, coaches and administrators has to be the top priority and so, like much of the footballing world, we will wait to find the right time to stage this vital competition for the development of our women’s footballers.

“We continue to engage with our valued partners in the Mauritius Football Association and will announce new dates as soon as is feasible.

“These are uncertain times and so we thank the people of Southern Africa, sponsors and all stakeholders for their patience.”
