The Court of Arbitration for Sport has ruled that the Liberia Football Association's appeal against the Confederation of African Football's presidential election rule changes is not currently in their jurisdiction.
Cas was looking into appeals from the Liberia FA against changes to the Caf statutes, which take effect on Monday 3 December.
Liberian officials had asked for interim verdicts to block the amendments until a full hearing is held.
But Cas said in a statement on Friday that it was unable to be involved at present because it recognised Caf's assertions that the body has its own internal appeals procedure, which must be followed first, and also that the amendments had not yet come into effect.
Mandela National Stadium pitch
Cecafa Tusker Cup organisers have succumbed to pressure following the despicable conditions at Namboole and moved Saturday games to two other stadiums.
Heavy rains in the past days have seen games played on a rather unplayable Namboole turf and the condition seemed to get out of hand oon Thursday but the two games went ahead nonetheless.
But something had to be done. “Namboole is in bad shape and we want to give it breathing space,” said Nicholas Musonye, Cecafa general secretary, at a hastily organized news conference on Friday morning in Kampala.
Al-Merreikh players hold Sudan Cup
Al-Merreikh beat Al-Hilal 3-1 on penalties to regain the Sudan Cup on Wednesday.
After a goalless draw with few clear cut chances, Egyptian goalkeeper Essam El-Hadary saved three Al-Hilal spot-kicks to guide Al-Merreikh to glory.
The result saw both team share silverware honours in Sudanese football, with Al-Hilal winning the league title.
The match proved to be a dour affair watched by a record low attendance, as both teams cancelled each other out. The poor turnout has been put down to the failure of Sudanese clubs and the national team.
