Egypt to host 2019 Africa Cup of Nations
Addis Ababa, January 8, 2019 (FBC) -The Confederation of African Football (CAF) awarded Egypt to host the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.
CAF stripped Cameroon of the rights to host tournament last November due to unpreparedness and insecurity.
Egypt and South Africa then made bids to take up the competition, pledging ready facilities.
Following a vote held today, Egypt won by 16 votes.
The tournament will be held in June.
