Morocco win appeal against AFCON ban
The Royal Moroccan Football Federation (FRMF) appealed to the CAS in mid-February against the sanctions imposed on them by CAF for failing to host the 2015 AFCON.
CAF had originally banned Morocco from the next two editions of the AFCON, in addition to a $1 million fine and $9 million in compensation.
“The sanctions imposed by the CAF on the FRMF have been set aside, with the exception of the fine, which is however reduced to USD 50,000” a CAS statement said.
The statement added that CAF may still pursue the compensation charges:
“The question related to the compensation of the possible damage caused by the FRMF to the CAF may still be examined by another jurisdiction.”
The verdict comes right on time for Morocco, one week before the draw for the 2017 AFCON Qualifiers which is expected to be held in Cairo on the 8th April 2015.
