The World Health Organisation (WHO) and Confederation of African Football (CAF) have cleared Guinea to host the Malawi national team in Conakry on March 25.
The Football Association of Malawi (FAM) wrote CAF seeking guidance following reports of new Ebola cases in Guinea. CAF then wrote the UN agency who has since said that Conakry is free from Ebola.
“Many thanks for your message! The cases are in Nzérékoré in the forest area and do not pose a threat to holding match in Conakry. There is no travel restriction to Conakry,” reads a message from Dr Socé Fall, director of health security and emergencies at WHO regional Office for Africa.
Initially, FAM had reportedly written FIFA and CAF to consider shifting the match to a neutral ground.
The Flames face Guinea at 28 September Stadium on Friday in the 2017 Afcon Qualifier between Flames and Guinea and a return league will be played on the 29th March at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre.
The team is currently in Sierra Leone where it will play a strength testing match this afternoon before flying to Conakry later in the evening.
