The report claimed that facilities do not or no longer offer the guarantees necessary to host CAF competitions, particularly Africa Cup of Nations.

The CAF said it was agreed that the improvement of several infrastructures will be a priority for the organisation, with a detailed plan expected to be produced.

Discussions are reportedly underway to collaborate with the World Health Organization to enable independent bodies to carry out COVID-19 testing before matches.

The move comes as the organisation plans for the Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon, and follows controversy over the veracity of testing in some club competitions.

The meeting saw confirmation that Ivorian Jacques Anouma has been named as senior special advisor to Motsepe.

Anouma had initially stood for the CAF Presidency, but withdrew his candidacy amid an agreement reached for Motsepe to stand unopposed.

Senegal’s Augustin Senghor and Mauritanian Ahmed Yahya accepted first and second vice-president positions, while Anouma agreed to be a special advisor.

The CAF also confirmed that South Africa’s Daniel Jordaan has been named advisor in charge of competitions and marketing.

Somali Football Federation President Abdigani Said Arab has been co-opted onto the CAF Executive Committee, while Morocco’s Fouzi Lekjaa was confirmed as CAF Finance Committee chair.

Egypt’s Hany Abou Rida and Nigeria’s Amaju Melvin Pinnick were added as members of CAF’s Emergency Committee.
