CAS Morocco to Play 2017 and 2019 African Cup of Nations

Rabat – The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has lifted on Thursday Morocco’s ban from participating in the 2017 and 2019 African Cup of Nations, which was imposed by the Confederation of African Football (CAF).CAS said that the “sanctions imposed by CAF on the FRMF have been set aside, with the exception of the fine, which is however reduced to $50,000.”The Confederation of African Football’s Executive Committee decided to ban Morocco from the next two African Nations Cup tournaments after asking to postpone the 2015 Afcon due to fears of the Ebola virus. Morocco was fined to pay a $1 million and was also ordered to pay 8 million euros in damages to CAF and its partners.
