On December 6th, Futsal Focus received crucial updates from our reliable sources in Africa regarding the 2024 Futsal Africa Cup of Nations. Initially, we, too, were under the impression that Mozambique was excluded from the competition, as their name was conspicuously absent from the roster. Consequently, we published this information, speculating that Mozambique had withdrawn from the tournament, especially in light of their earlier decision to relinquish their role as hosts.

After publishing, our contacts reached out, questioning the omission of Mozambique as a participant. In response, we clarified that their exclusion was based on their absence from the official list. Subsequently, our contacts clarified that Mozambique, having been the previous host, didn’t need to register separately for the competition hence why they were absent. Our contacts informed us that they have been in contact with the Mozambique Head Coach, and he confirmed their continued participation in the tournament. Due to this, we republished our article. Yesterday, Afrique Futsal posted on their Facebook page that Mozambique wasn’t part of the competition. This led followers to question our inclusion of Mozambique, prompting the need for clarification.

As of now, Mozambique has not received any official communication from the Confederation of African Football (CAF) indicating their exclusion or punitive measures for relinquishing their hosting duties. According to their understanding, they anticipate being part of the draw scheduled for the last week of this month. Therefore at this time, there are 12 participating nations until CAF or Mozambique says otherwise:

  1. Algeria
  2. Angola
  3. Cameroon
  4. Cote D’Ivoire (Ivory Coast)
  5. Egypt
  6. Ghana
  7. Libya
  8. Morocco
  9. Namibia
  10. Tanzania
  11. Zambia
  12. Mozambique
