SPORTAFCON 2019: CAF issues strong warning to participating countriesPublished on June 20, 2019 By Ifreke Inyang

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has warned countries participating at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations finals, to brace themselves for the possibility of playing games in unbearable temperatures.

CAF says the average temperature during the AFCON finals, is likely to be between 35-38 degrees Celsius, with an average humidity of 40-60%.

“This would give a high wet bulb globe temperature (WBGT) index reading above 32 degrees.

“It is certain that most teams will be aware of this and will train accordingly.

“At this level, FIFA recommends three-minute rest-and-refreshing breaks in the 30th and 75th minutes.

“These breaks must require the provision of cold containers on wheels to put crushed ice, drinks for referees and small towels cold and wet to place around the neck for 26 people (four referees and 22 players).

“It will also be necessary to prepare for any eventuality of emergencies. It will be important to be able to diagnose and treat heat-related illnesses if they occur on site,” the statement read.

The tournament kicks off June 21 and runs until July 19.
