CAF considering Algeria, Morocco as likely host of 2019 AFCON

Indications have emerged to suggest that the Confederation of Africa Football is considering a number of countries, including Morocco and Algeria to host the 2019 event.

This may likely occur as Cameroon face being stripped of hosting the event after the CAF boss, Mr. Ahmad Ahmad admitted on Saturday that the Cameroon “is not ready” to host the 2019 tournament.

“Cameroon isn’t ready to welcome even four teams,” said Ahmad, the president of the Confederation of African Football (CAF).

With Cameroon struggling to complete the necessary infrastructure projects to host the three-week event, Ahmad said that an inspection committee will be sent to evaluate progress.

“It’s only then that we would take the necessary conclusions with the executive committee,” he said before adding that there is always a “plan B”.

“Plan B is to open tender procedures so that there are other (countries) participating in the organisation,” said Ahmad without elaborating.

A number of countries, including Morocco and Algeria, have said they are ready to host the 2019 event.
