Biashara United to Petition CAF Over Disqualification from CAF Confederation Cup

Biashara United have vowed to launch a complaint against Confederation of African Football (CAF) over their disqualification from the Africa Confederation Cup after they failed to travel to Libya a fortnight ago.

CAF communicated to Tanzanian Football Federation (TFF) late on Monday notifying the Tanzania Mainland representatives that they had been disqualified for failing to travel to Tripoli, Libya, for the return leg against Al Ahli Tripoli.

Biashara had won the first leg 2-0 but communicated to CAF a day before the match that they could not travel to Tripoli having failed to obtain over-flight permits over Sudan and South Sudan.

A source at the club disclosed to Ducor Sports on Thursday morning that they had received the communication from CAF and would respond accordingly.

CAF said on Monday that they noted with regret the no show of Biashara United for the match that was set to be played on 23rd October, 2021 at Martyrs’ of Benina Stadium.

The African football governing body further stated that the case was submitted to the Organizing Committee for Inter-clubs Competitions and Management of the Club Licensing System who decided the club’s absence was not as a result of force majeure.

CAF indicated that they decided to disqualify Biashara United from the competition in accordance with Article 16, Chapter XI of the regulations governing the competition.

TFF is expected also to write back to CAF to explain Biashara’s scenario and hope that the disqualification can be reversed.

Biashara United are set to face a three-year ban from international competitions and also pay another heavy fine after the committee computes how much profit the Libyan team would have made if the game had taken place.
