South African Football Association files complaint over Liberia “hosting” 2023 AFCON qualifier in Morocco

The South African Football Association (SAFA) requested that CAF move the venue of Liberia’s 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match against Morocco to a different country this week. Liberia arranged for their home qualifying fixtures to be played in Morocco due to not having a suitable stadium in the country that meets CAF’s requirements, setting up a “home” match against Morocco that will take place in the North African country. SAFA stated that they understand the situation but feel that the other Group K competitors should not be disadvantaged due to the circumstances.

Bafana Bafana are in Group K along with Liberia, Morocco and Zimbabwe and feel that Liberia hosting a home match against the Atlas Lions in Morocco will give the group favorites an unfair advantage over the other three teams. Morocco had a similar situation in 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying, playing all six of their fixtures on home soil and going undefeated on their way to qualification due to group rivals Guinea-Bissau, Guinea and Sudan having similar situations.
