BREAKING: Egypt confirmed as hosts for Africa Cup of Nation


Egypt beat South Africa as the only two countries who submit a bid after African football fraternity has taken the rights away from Cameroon late last year due to low preparations and not ready to host a successful and expanded 24-team tournament.

Caf was expected to make an official announcement on Wednesday, but this was brought forward to Tuesday.

Egypt last organised the prestigious African tournament 13 years ago, where they lifted the coveted title for the fifth time in their illustrious history and will be fifth time hosting the competition.

The 2019 Africa Cup of Nations is between June 15 and July 13, while CAF gave Cameroon the right to host the next tournament in 2021 in hopes that its preparations will be completed by then.
