African football leaders say they are monitoring the political turmoil in Libya before moving the eight-nation under-20 championship scheduled to kick off there next month.
The Confederation of African Football says its executive committee will meet “very soon” to decide whether or not to move the event.
African media reports say Ghana, Nigeria and South Africa are standing by to host.
The championship is scheduled for March 18 to April 1 with matches in Tripoli and Benghazi.
The organising committee is headed by Muammar Gaddafi’s eldest son Mohammed.
Libya is grouped with Egypt, Lesotho and Mali. The other group has Cameroon, Gambia, Ghana and Nigeria.
Four teams will qualify for the Under-20 World Cup in Colombia in July.
