CAF lift ban on Libya hosting games

- Yasmine El Tohamy - The Libyan Football Federation have announced that their ban on hosting games that was imposed by CAF has been lifted.

Since the civil war in 2011, Libyan teams have been forced to play their matches on foreign soil due to saftey reasons.

Moreover, the war has caused the stoppage of the Libyan Premier League and severely disrupted domestic affairs, with the national team failing to qualify for the past four AFCONs and Libyan teams performing poor in the CAF competitions.

However, things are set to get better for the country as the ban on the North African nation hosting matches has been lifted.

“The complete ban has been lifted on all Libyan stadiums, especially in terms of security,” Libyan FA president Abdelhakim Al-Shamlani said.

“There are some observations on the Tripoli International Stadium, but they are within reach and will be addressed immediately.

“CAF requested to prepare an urgent security plan before hosting Tunisia in the 2021 AFCON qualifiers.

“I thank the Executive Committee of the CAF and the Libyan efforts to obtain the necessary approvals,” he added.

Libya are placed in Group J of the 2021 AFCON qualifiers alongside the Tunisia, Tanzania, and Equatorial Guinea.

They sit bottom of the group with just three points from four games and they will need to win their remaining two games in order to have any chance of reaching the finals.

Moreover, Libya are placed in Egypt’s World Cup qualifying Group with Gabon and Angola.
