    FIFA Arab Cup 2021 – News – FIFA Arab Cup 2021™ qualification match between Jordan and South Sudan forfeited

    Following the confirmation of COVID-19 cases among the South Sudan delegation, the FIFA Bureau for Men’s Senior Tournaments has declared the match scheduled to take place this evening against Jordan as part of the FIFA Arab Cup qualifiers a forfeit with a 3-0 win to Jordan. The decision is based on article 5.6 of the competition regulations (“force majeure”) and takes into consideration the need to protect the health of the players and everyone involved in the tournament.

    Upon their arrival in Qatar and as per the protocols established by the Qatari Ministry of Health, all delegations were tested for COVID-19. After two rounds of PCR tests, it was confirmed that seven players and one team member of South Sudan were positive, with another five players receiving a reactive test result, which as per the Qatari Ministry of Health, means that these players were likely incubating the virus. Given that another seven players had close contact with those who tested positive, a total of 19 players are currently in isolation. There are no cases presenting severe symptoms and everyone who tested positive is being monitored and receiving the best possible medical care for free through the Qatar national healthcare system. 

    FIFA and the local organisers deeply regret this unfortunate situation and wish the delegates of South Sudan a speedy recovery.

    Following the cancellation of this match all tickets will be refunded.

    Protecting the health and safety of everyone involved in the FIFA Arab Cup remains a top priority with a comprehensive programme based on the World Health Organization’s risk-based approach being implemented in coordination with the host country.
