Sierra Leone Football Association has informed that CAF has notified SLFA that the Organising Committee of the African Cup of Nations has decided to postpone the Match #151 between Sierra Leone and Benin in the 2021 AFCON Qualifiers until the next FIFA international window scheduled for June 2021.

CAF did not state the yardstick used by the Committee to arrive at the said decision. Consequently, and in accordance with Art 83, 84 and 85 of the AFCON Regulations which adequately address issues around failure to report for a match and/or refusal to play, of which there have been several precedents, the Sierra Leone Football Association has resolved to appeal against the decision of the AFCON Organising Committee.

SLFA is therefore calling on every Sierra Leonean especially football loving fans to stay calm as the matter is currently being pursued in line with the appropriate statutory provisions.
