See Country To Host 2019 AFCON . by Apostle(m): 3:51am on January 9
Egypt has won the right to host the 2019 AFCON tournament, and this was announced after CAF’s executive meeting in Dakar, Senegal on Tuesday morning.

Egypt was announced as host of 2019 AFCON tournament after Cameroon were dumped as hosts late last year.

Though South Africa and Egypt were the only two nations to submit bids for the tournament, which is only five months away from kicking off, North African media outlets had predicted an Egyptian win long before the announcement this morning.

While Egypt last hosted the AFCON in 2006 – for South Africa it was 2013 – they’ve hosted on four occasions in total compared to South Africa’s two.

The football tournament between African countries, has been expanded to 24 nations and has moved from the usual January slot to June.

Cameroon was however stripped of hosting rights, because of delays in infrastructure and security concerns.
