CAF casts Fresh Doubts over 2019 AFCON in Cameroon

The CAF Executive Committee is skeptical about Cameroon’s readiness to host the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations and have set a November date for a final decision to be taken on the matter.

Cameroon were awarded the rights to host the continent’s biggest football showpiece event during the CAF leadership of Issa Hayatou – the former CAF President – but there are doubts the Central African country can pull it off after all.

 


After a two-day meeting in Egypt, the CAF Executive Committee published a progress report on several of the Confederation’s competitions coming up between 2018 and 2021; including next year’s Afcon.

 

On the 32nd edition of the Africa Cup of Nation in Cameroon, stated that “A visual report revealed a significant delay as far as the delivery of infrastructures is concerned.”

 

Concerns were also raised about the security situation in parts of the Country.

 

Thus, the Committee agreed that:

i.The final decision will be taken in late November after the last inspection visit which will involve audit firm Roland Berger.

ii. Beforehand, a joint CAF and FIFA Committee will travel to Cameroon in October to study security issues.

 

The Africa Cup of Nations with its new-24 team format will be held from 15 June to 13 July 2019.
