Tunisia banned from Chan, replaced by Libya in 2020 edition

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has banned Tunisia from taking part in the 2022 Chan tournament after the North Africans made a late withdrawal from this year’s edition to be held in Cameroon.

The Carthage Eagles pulled out of the competition owing to a congested domestic calendar which saw Tunisian clubs refuse to release their players for the competition for home-based players.

The Tunisian FA will also pay a $US 50 000 fine.

CAF confirmed the disciplinary judgement on Thursday.

Meanwhile, Tunisia will be replaced by Libya whom they beat 3-1 on aggregate in the last qualifying round for the finals.
