Egypt To Host The 2019 Africa Cup Of Nations.

Egypt has been awarded the rights to host the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations tournament by The Confederation of African Football (CAF)
Egypt main hosting bid rival was South Africa. The hosting rights were taken away from Cameroon late last year, due to both delays in its preparations for the tourney, and the continuing violence and killings in English speaking Cameroon.
Egypt last hosted the tournament 13 years ago, where they lifted the coveted title for a record fifth time.

 


This year's edition has been expanded to 24 teams up from 16. It has also been moved to an off-season schedule instead of its former January to February calendar. Cameroon was also given the rights to host the 2021 African Cup of Nations, hoping they finish stadium construction by then.
