Confederation of African Football (CAF) president Ahmad Ahmad has revealed that next month will see the organisation announce the new 2019 AFCON tournament hosts after taking away from hosts Cameroon last month.
Ahmad confirmed the announcement will be made in January and confirmed speculation that South Africa have made a bid to host the 2019 AFCON championship.
“A final decision on who will host next summer’s football showpiece will be announced on January 9,” Ahmad said in an interview with AFP
“According to my information, two or three letters of intent have arrived. South Africa is one of the countries to have sent a letter of intention. Two or three countries have made serious inquiries.”
“Everything will be finalised by December 25 to create a shortlist of candidates who have been evaluated and noted,” the Malagasy said.
