The Union of Arab Football Associations, UAFA, is considering cancelling the suspended Arab Champions Cup, dubbed the Mohammed VI Cup, over the continuous spread of covid-19 in the countries of the four finalist teams.
The competition was suspended in February after the first leg of the first semi-final between Morocco’s Raja Casablanca and Egypt’s Ismailia away. The Egyptian side won 1-0.
Saudi teams Al Shabab and Al Ittihad Jeddah make up the second semi-final.
The UAFA did not allow the competition to go ahead after the participating countries reported coronavirus cases.
The Union is now toying with the idea of canceling the championship as the pandemic is still spreading including in Morocco, Egypt and Saudi Arabia, reported Moroccan Assabah daily.
Morocco reported Monday 5000 cases, Egypt 6,465 and Saudi Arabia 28,656.
The final of the competition was slated on April 18 in Morocco at the Moulay Abdellah Stadium in capital Rabat.
