Organising Committee adjusts Niger 2015 kick-off times
15 February 2015 08:43

Following a recommendation of the CAF Medical Committee, the Organising Committee of the African U17 Championship has rescheduled the kick-off times of eight matches of the final tournament in Niger. The Committee, at its sitting in the Nigerien capital of Niamey, noted and accepted the concerns raised by the Medical Committee of starting games in very high temperatures which are characteristic of Niamey at this time of the year.


The Organising Committee noted that the health of the players was placed among priorities and after consultation with the Local Organising Committee adjusted the kick off times of some fixtures by one hour.


Match day one remains unchanged with the opening match Niger vs Nigeria kicking off at 15:00 local time (14:00GMT) and the second match Guinea vs Zambia at 18:00 local (17:00GMT).


Following the changes, match number 16, the final will be kick-off at 18:00 GMT and 3rd/4th place match 15 at 15:00 GMT.

Other matches adjusted are match 3 Cote d'Ivoire vs South Africa (now 15:00 GMT) match 4 Mali vs Cameroon (now 18:00GMT), match 5 Nigeria vs Guinea (now 15:00 GMT), match 6 Zambia vs Niger (now 18:00GMT), match 7 South Africa vs Mali (now 15:00GMT), match 8 Cameroon vs Cote d'Ivoire (now 18:00GMT).


The 11th edition of the Africa U17 championship in Niger runs from 15th February to 2nd March. The tournament also serves as qualifiers for the FIFA U17 World Cup which Chile will host later this year. The semi-finalists qualify for the world cup.
