CAF DUMPS CAMEROON AND CHOOSES EGYPT TO HOST AFCON 2019

African Cup of Nations 2019
7 Jun 2019 – 30 Jun 2019

Egypt has been chosen by the Confedreation of African Football to host the African cup of Nations on Tuesday morning.

South Africa and Egypt were the only two nations to submit bids for the tournament, which is only five months away from kicking off, after Cameroon were denied to host AFCON late last year due to delay in infrastructure and security concerns.

Tuesday’s CAF executive committee revealed Egypt as the nation to replace Cameroon as 2019 Afcon hosts. North African media outlets had predicted an Egyptian win long before the announcement this morning.

Ahead of the announcement, an Egyptian delegation led by Football Federation President Hany Abo Rida arrived on Monday in Dakar, Senegal capital, to attend CAF Executive Committee meeting. 

The Egyptian delegation includes Presentation Sports CEO, Mohamed Kamel, and Football Federation board member, Ahmed Megahed, Karam Kordy and Magdy Abel Ghany. 

Once the delegation arrived, its members met with the Executive Committee members to convince them to vote for Egypt to host the next tournament.
