Africa Cup of Nations: Court of Arbitration for Sport dismisses Comoros’ case




Comoros missed out on qualifying for the Africa Cup of Nations finals in Egypt

The Court of Arbitration for Sport (Cas) has dismissed the appeals from the Comoros Football Federation (FFC) over Cameroon’s participation at the Africa Cup of Nations.

The FFC argued on 29 May that Cameroon should be excluded from the 2019 Nations Cup finals after having the hosting rights for the tournament withdrawn from them.

The FFC argued that the Confederation of African Football had failed to implement its own regulations concerning the action to be taken.

“On the basis of the evidence and arguments presented by the parties, the Cas Panel concluded that the appeals were inadmissible,” the court said in statement.
