The qualifying matches in June were already due to be disrupted by a CAF decision this week that suspended many stadiums from staging national team games.
A total of 20 of CAF’s 54 member federations are now said to lack a stadium meeting minimum requirements, including eight still involved in World Cup qualifying.
Those federations were asked to propose replacement venues in neutral countries which would add to cross-border travel amid the coronavirus pandemic.
CAF president Patrice Motsepe was elected in March promising to improve Africa’s soccer infrastructure. The South African mining billionaire was unopposed in the vote when other candidates stood aside in a deal brokered by FIFA president Gianni Infantino.
