CAF announces punishments for incidents from AFCON qualifying and Confederation Cup

CAF released a statement that notified of several sanctions handed out by Africa’s footballing body going back to incidents from earlier in the year. The major dispute related to the Sierra Leone-Benin Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match that was delayed due to the refusal of the Benin side to recognize the Covid-19 test results when five of their players were announced as testing positive by Sierra Leone. CAF determined that Benin’s claims for damages were not valid but still fined Sierra Leone $5,000 for “failure to respect the principles of loyalty, integrity, sportsmanship and ethics”.

The other announcements related to incidents from the 2020-21 CAF Confederation Cup. Two incidents after the final match between Raja Casablanca and JS Kabylie saw fans rush onto the field and refuse to leave and an Algerian journalist disrupt the post-match press conference. CAF sanctioned the Benin Football Federation, who hosted the match and were responsible for security, as well as both JS Kabylie and Raja for the behavior of their supporters.
