CONFIRMED: Egypt to host 2019 AFCON

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has officially made an announcement that Egypt will be hosting the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations tournament.

Only two nations showed interest to host the 2019 competition, Egypt and South Africa, after the rights were taken away from Cameroon late 2018.

According to the Association of African Football, Cameroon was not ready to host a successful and expanded 24-team tournament and that necessitated the search for new hosts.

Before now, Egypt had hosted Africa’s biggest football tournament a few times and they have remained the most successful team in the history of African Football.

Nigeria and Egypt will be having a friendly match between themselves to kick-off preparations for the 2019 AFCON.
