The World Football Summit Africa, which was scheduled to take place in Durban, has been postponed, due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“In the light of the COVID-19 outbreak, which has been officially declared a global pandemic by the World Health Organisation (WHO), World Football Summit has been forced to make the difficult decision to postpone the celebration of WFS Africa, scheduled for March 17 and 18 in Durban, SA.
The organisation said the decision was “heartbreaking”.
“During the last few months we have strived to put together an event of the calibre that the African football industry deserves. We were extremely excited with our first-ever African summit and were looking forward to welcoming the continent’s most relevant leaders and stakeholders.”
The team is exploring options to reschedule the event.
“Details will be announced as soon as possible.”
