FIFA has confirmed that the 2022 World Cup qualifiers scheduled for Africa during June have been postponed until September due to the coronavirus and stadiums not meeting international standards.

There will now be double match days in September, October and November with the ten group winners advancing to the final round next March.

 

Africa has been allocated five places at the thirty second nation tournament in Qatar, which has been moved from its traditional mid-year setting to November and December because of extreme summer heat.

 

Recently elected Confederation of African Football president, Patrice Motsepe from South Africa has prioritised improving poor facilities and pitches at many national stadiums.
