Valcke on 2023 Afcon postponement
- From the section Football
Fifa secretary general Jerome Valcke says the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations will be postponed from January to June to help move the 2022 World Cup.
A Fifa taskforce has recommended the World Cup is played in November and December to avoid Qatar's hot summer.
"The African confederation has automatically and nicely agreed it will not organise the Nations Cup in January 2023," Valcke said.
"It will have to postpone the Africa Cup of Nations to June."
