The decision was communicated at the video conference enhanced Caf meeting held on Thursday when the Emergency Committee approved the decision.

The money is meant to support the management of football at the domestic levels hugely affected by the Covid-19 pandemic where football in virtually all the countries apart from Burundi, Seychelles and Lesotho came to a standstill.

Earlier this month, Caf also confirmed the immediate distribution of $3.5 million to the participants of the Interclub competitions for the 2019/20 season since the two main club competitions, Total Caf Champions League and Total Caf Confederation Cup, were suspended after the quarterfinals matches due to COVID-19.
