The 45th Ordinary General Assembly of CAF will no longer be held in the Republic of Benin as planned by the governing body of football on the African continent. The event will instead be held in Côte d’Ivoire.

Initially scheduled for July 13, 2023 in the capital of Benin, the 45th Ordinary General Assembly of CAF will be held in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire, on the same date.

Although the reason for this decision remains unknown for the moment, CAF has opened a second media accreditation request window today June 28, 2023 and which will close on June 30, 2023.

According to the previous program, the day before the event (July 12) would be marked by the draw for the African qualifiers for the 2026 World Cup. No update on this subject has yet been announced.
