Nigeria/Benin’s bid to host the 2027 Africa Cup of Nations has been defeated as CAF opted for Tanzania/Kenya and Uganda as nations to co-host the 2027 tournament.
Recall News Chronicle reported that Sports Minister Senator John Ewan Enoh and representatives of the NFF touched down in Cairo, Egypt to defend their bid to co-host the 2027 tournament with the Benin Republic. Their bid didn’t pull through as Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda’s bid was confirmed and made official hosts for the 2027 edition of the tournament.
Furthermore, CAF announced Morocco as the host of the 2025 AFCON after Algeria was said to have backed out.
“Morocco will host the 35th edition of the TotalEnergies CAF Africa Cup of Nations 2025, the Executive Committee has announced.
The decision was taken during the meeting of the CAF Executive Committee on Wednesday.
Morocco will be hosting Africa’s flagship event for the second time, 35 years after the North African country staged the competition in 1988.”
