On 5 February 2015, The CAF Executive Committee decided to suspend the Morocco national football team from the next two editions of the Africa Cup of Nations, 2017 and 2019, and to impose on the Royal Moroccan Football Federation the regulatory fine of US$1 million, along with the sum of 8.05 million Euros in compensation for all material damage sustained by CAF, stakeholders and partners as a result of the decision not to host 2015 edition.[2] The penalty was lifted later and Morocco participated in Gabon's 2017 AFCONs, reaching the Quarter finals.
