CAF to decide new CHAN host on Saturday

Cameroon confirmed host of 2019 Nations Cup finals

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) will decide the new hosts of the 2018 African Nations Championship (CHAN) on Saturday.

Morocco and Equatorial Guinea have both bid to replace Kenya who had their right to host withdrawn by CAF due to a lack of preparation.

The international tournament for locally-based players only is due to kick off in January and the choice will be made at an emergency CAF executive committee meeting.

During a meeting of the Africa Cup of Nations organizing committee on Wednesday meanwhile, CAF president Ahmad reaffirmed that Cameroon are still set to host the 2019 finals.

“At no time had any consideration been given to revisiting decisions already taken in conformity with the provisions of the Statutes and leading to the designation of Cameroon, Ivory Coast and Guinea, as host country of the next three editions in 2019, 2021 and 2023,” a statement read.

“Our role is to best accompany Cameroon, which organizes in 2019, in a new format, to properly fill in the list of requirements of the host agreement,” Ahmad said.
