Africa Cup of Nations: Morocco win appeal over tournament bans

  • The court of arbitration for sport has decided in favor of Morocco after the country appealed against its ban from the 2017 and 2019 editions of the Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) tournaments.

    The court overturned a decision by the Confederation of African Football, which was taken after Morocco declined to host the 2015 finals.

    The fine on the country’s football body has also been reduced from $1 million to $50,000, reports said.
