CAF has explained that the three member associations submitted their bids during the February 11-20 timeline, while the Prince Moulay Abdellah Sports Stadium in Rabat, Morocco is the only nomination to host the final game of the Confederation Cup.

“A final decision is expected to be made by the CAF Emergency Committee on March 12, 2020,” the statement concluded.
