CAF relocates quarter-final matches to Malabo and Bata

The venues for the quarter-final games of the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations in Equatorial Guinea has been moved to new venues, Malabo and Bata.

CAF’s Executive Committee took the decision on Tuesday due to the deteriorating pitches in Ebebiyin and Mongomo.

The Confederation of African Football said in a statement: “The two pitches (in Ebebiyin and Monogo) have been adversely affected by combination of wear and tear from the six games played or to be played in each of them and the unstable weather conditions seen lately.

“The eight teams qualified for the quarter-final stages onwards should be given the opportunity to play on grounds that provide the highest standards, specifically those of Bata and Malabo, to ensure the quality of play remains at the highest possible level.”
