Al Merreikh would
have reached the quarterfinals of the African Champions League
with victory at
Tunisia’s Etoile Sahel on Friday.
Al Hilal Omdurman
had already been eliminated, but was also due to play Friday night.
CAF didn’t immediately say how it would restructure the competitions.
A FIFA suspension means Sudan’s national team and its clubs are
not allowed to play
in international competitions, and the country’s federation
cannot receive any funding from FIFA or CAF until it is reinstated.
Sudan has already been eliminated in qualifying for the 2018 World Cup, but is involved in qualifying for the 2019
African Cup of Nations. Its next African Cupqualifier is in March next year but won’t be able to
play in that game if it is still suspended by FIFA.
