CAF to name new AFCON host January 9
African football governing body, CAF says she would announce the new host of next year’s African Cup of Nations on January 9 in Dakar, Senegal.
CAF who last month stripped Cameroon of the hosting right further confirmed that the duo of South Africa and Egypt have submitted bids.
CAF on her official website stated:
“Formal applications have been received from the Egyptian and South African football associations to host the AFCON 2019. The international consulting firm Roland Berger will now review the bids and seek additional materials and conduct inspection visits where required. A CAF Extraordinary Executive Committee Meeting will take place in Dakar, Senegal on 9th January 2019 to agree on the new AFCON 2019 Host Nation. An announcement will be made by CAF after that meeting.”
CAF it would be noted stripped Cameroon of the hosting right over fear of insecurity and the slow pace of work in the stadiums being constructed for the soccer showpiece.
