CAF to discuss Cameroon’s ability to host 2019 Africa Cup of Nations on Wednesday

Cameroon to host 2019 Africa Cup of Nations


The Confederation of African Football (Caf) will discuss Cameroon’s ability to host the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations on Wednesday. There have been concerns about Cameroon hosting the competition.

“An intermediary report will be sent by the inspectors,” Caf Director of Communications Junior Binyam said.

“That will be part of the Africa Cup of Nations committee agenda on 31 January.”

“The report of the Nations Cup committee meeting is part of the Executive Committee agenda on 1 February.”

Caf will hold a General Assembly the following day in Morocco, which is currently staging the ongoing African Nations Championship (CHAN).

The tournament, which has expanded from 16 to 24 teams since Cameroon won the right to host in 2014, is set to be staged in five different cities – Bafoussam, Douala, Garoua, Limbe and Yaounde.

Caf president Ahmad has said on several occasions that African football’s ruling body will find an alternative host if Cameroon – which has always insisted it will be ready – is unable to host the finals.

Morocco has put itself on standby to host the finals, given concerns about Cameroon’s preparations.
