CAF Executive Committee meeting to decide 2019 AFCON host today

Confederation of African Football (CAF) Executive committee meeting that will make the most awaited decision on 2019 Africa Cup of Nations hosts will be known today Tuesday (8.01.2019) and not Wednesday.

CAF officially stripped Cameroon off the hosting rights back in November after they failed to fulfill the necessary organizational requirements.

Egyptian Football Association and South Africa football Association , submitted a bids to host the 2019 tournament after Morocco surprisingly withdrew their bid.

CAF released a statement saying that the Executive Committee will summon on Tuesday instead of Wednesday to decide on the AFCON 2019 hosts, with an announcement set to follow.

Grapevine is rife that Egypt will win the hosting rights taking it away from South Africa.

The meeting will take place few hours before the Aiteo CAF Awards ceremony to determine the Africa Player of the Year which Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang have all been lined up .
