The Confederation of African Football (Caf) will be distributing financial grants to its member associations to support those federations during the novel coronavirus pandemic, the footballing body announced.

A total of 10.8 million US dollars will be transferred to the 54 member associations on the continent as part of a relief plan to ease the financial burden on the African football community during these unprecedented times.

“Due to the fast-spread of Covid-19, African member associations have suspended all domestic competitions, which has brought about huge financial burdens on their shoulders. Caf has thus decided to wave the eligibility requirements to access the annual grants, so all MA’s can benefit during this difficult period,” said Caf president Ahmad Ahmad.

Caf is also assessing the opportunity of additional financial support to member associations for the resumption and organisation of their domestic competitions.

Two weeks ago, Caf announced the distribution of 3.5 million US dollars to the participants of the Interclub competitions for the 2019/20 season. The two club competitions, African Champions League and African Confederation Cup were suspended after the quarterfinal matches due to Covid-19.

Meanwhile, Caf is monitoring the situation closely and working with the World Health Organisation (WHO) and Fifa on the impact of the virus on the continent and will announce developments to its competitions at a later stage.
