The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has postponed the opening round of the 2022 Qatar World Cup qualifiers.

The road battle to Qatar was set to start in June, but CAF has reached a decision to move the events to September, thanks to the COVID-19 impact.

“The qualifiers will now take place in the existing windows of September, October and November 2021, and March 2022,” CAF’s statement said.

“CAF is reassessing its protocols and processes to enhance the implementation of COVID-related protocols, including specifically focusing on pre-match testing which had been the source of some challenges in previous windows,” the brief ended.
