The national team participates in the African Cup of Nations


Last June, the Royal Moroccan Sports Federation for People with Disabilities organized the finals of the national amputee football championship. The objective: to activate the formation of a national amputee football team with the aim of participating in the Africa Cup of Nations scheduled in Tanzania from November 26 to December 5.
Since then, a national team of 14 players has emerged. A preparation program was set up and led by the national coach Fouad Assou. Friendly matches have been included.
In the upcoming African tournament, Morocco is playing in the same group as the host country Tanzania, Uganda and Sierra Leone.
The winner of CAN Tanzania 2021 automatically qualifies for the World Championship organized by Turkey in 2022.
The national team left Morocco for Tanzania yesterday Wednesday for their first participation in the CAN.
As a reminder, football for amputees is capped by the World TOmputees Football Federation (WAFF) globally.
-It is played with amputee players (2 hands and one leg for field players while goalkeepers move with 2 legs but only one hand).
-Each team is made up of 7 players (6 field and a goalkeeper).
– The match is played in 2 halves (25 × 2).
