A letter signed by the General Secretary of the Confédération Africaine de Football (CAF), Hicham El Amrani addressed to the president of the Guinean Football Federation, Salifou Camara, on Monday 4 January 2016, informed him of the lifting of the ban that prevented the member association from hosting international matches on its territory due to the outbreak of the Ebola virus.

“CAF has learned with joy and relief the announcement by the World Health Organization (WHO) on 29 December 2015, officially confirming that Guinea is now declared Ebola free. CAF thereby confirms lifting the ban on the organization of continental matches in Guinea, and for all competitions organized by CAF,” the letter said.

The ban had been in effect since August 2014.
