The CAF Executive Committee (EXCO) will meet in Kigali, Rwanda this Saturday, 15 May 2021, chaired by CAF President, Dr. Patrice Motsepe.
FIFA President, Gianni Infantino will be among the distinguished guests.
The main items on the Executive Committee Agenda relate to the implementation of the Pan-African Schools Football Championship, the CAF/FIFA Refereeing Agreement and the FIFA-CAF USD 1 billion Infrastructure Development project. Amongst some of the matters under discussions will be the 2022-2024 competitions calendar and the challenges relating to the pre-match Covid19 testing.
Prior to the EXCO meeting, the President will hold several meetings including with the six CAF Zonal Unions Presidents (CECAFA, COSAFA, UNAF, UNIFFAC, WAFU A, WAFU B) .
All CAF members invited to CAF meetings in Rwanda registered through the Rwanda Biomedical Center website where they uploaded the negative result certificate for their PCR test.
Upon arrival at Kigali International Airport, everyone was tested again. Each then observed a mandatory quarantine in their room at the “CAF hotel” while awaiting the results of this test. The test results can generally be viewed within 8 hours on the Rwanda Biomedical Center (RBC) site using the phone number and the sample code provided at the airport.
CAF face-to-face meetings in Kigali respect the protocol in force in the country and are open only to guests whose PCR test or antigen test result is negative;
For our guests, wearing a mask is compulsory in all areas of the hotel and all visits by people outside the delegation are either prohibited or subject to presentation of a negative PCR test of less than 48 hours. The filter at the entrance to the hotel seems tamper-proof, with automatic temperature measurement and hydroalcoholic gel.
Participants in CAF meetings at the Kigali Serena Hotel are subject to the curfew in force throughout the country from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m.
An online media briefing will take place after the Executive Committee with access granted on invitation-only basis.
All decisions taken by the CAF EXCO will be communicated via a media release following the conclusion of the meeting.
