CAF has named Egypt as the host of the2019 Africa Cup of Nations. The Confederation of African Football (CAF) selected Egypt as the hosts of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) after their executive meeting in Dakar, Senegal on Tuesday morning.
South Africa and Egypt submitted bids after Cameroon were removed as hosts because of delays in infrastructure and security concerns.
This year’s tournament will be unique because the competition has been expanded to 24 nations and has moved from the usual January slot to June.
Egypt last hosted the Afcon in 2006.
