A statement from CAF has affirmed who will host the 2019 African cup of Nations.

Egypt will host the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, the Confederation of African Football (Caf) has announced.


Egypt beat South Africa, the only other nation to bid, by 16 votes to one with one abstention at a Caf executive committee vote in Senegal.


Original host nation Cameroon was stripped of staging duties in November because of slow preparations.


Egypt has just six months to prepare for the expanded 24-team finals, which kick off in June.


It will be the fifth time Egypt, which won the tournament when it last hosted in 2006, has staged the tournament.


“I want to thank the (Caf) Executive Committee for the trust, and I thank the government for this support,” said Egypt FA (EFA) president Hany Abu Rida.


“We organised the tournament on 2006 and that make us against a challenge to make better and better, we are ready for this honour.”


“The guarantee from government helped us to win against South Africa and that will help us to make a good tournament,” added Ahmed Shobair, vice-president of Egypt’s FA.


“The fans will be back again in the stadiums, which will be full in the tournament I promise.”


Egypt will use eight stadiums during the tournament, hosting in five different cities: Alexandria, Ismailia, Port Said, Suez and the capital Cairo.
