Egypt to stage biennial showpiece of African football from 15 June
New Delhi, Cairo (Egypt) Apr 04 (HS): Egypt will stage the biennial showpiece of African football for the fifth time. It will host the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations between 15th June and 13th July. Egypt only entered the running to host the Cup of Nations when fellow north African country Morocco announced they would not bid to do so. Morocco were the hot media favourites to replace Cameroon as hosts and Egypt said that they did not want to compete against a fellow Arab nation. However, Confederation of African Football (CAF) executive committee preferred Egypt to South Africa as replacement for original hosts Cameroon, who were dropped due to delays in preparations and concerns over security.
