After the mass panic with at least eight dead, two quarter-finals and a semi-final game of the Africa Cup in Cameroon have now been relocated to another stadium, the Continental Association CAF announced.
A quarter-final duel set for Sunday takes place in the Ahmad Video Stadium instead of the State d’Plebe. Another quarter-finals on Sunday and a semi-final on Tuesday will now be kicked off in the Tacoma Stadium in Douala in the Video Stadium. The Ahmad Video Stadium and the State d’Plebe are located in the capital, June.
In the case of a mass panic, the Plebe Stadium had been killed between hosts and the Comoros (2: 1) on Monday eight people and 38 injured in front of the Sleeve Stadium.
For the other semi-final, which is to be held in the Sleeve stadium, the association has not yet known a decision. These depend on the results of an investigation of mass panic. You must first check the report before the semifinals can take place in the Sleeve Stadium next Thursday. The discharge of the final on February 6 in the Sleeve stadium is also questionable and will depend on the results of the investigation.
The association also called for assurance and guarantee that appropriate and adequate measures have been taken to ensure that a similar incident in the Sleeve Stadium will not be re-occurred.
