Morocco has been selected as hosts of the 2025 African Cup of Nations (AfCON) by the Organisers.
This would be the second time that country would be hosting the prestigious tournament with their first being in the 1988 edition.
The Confederation of African Football (CAF) announced the news on Wednesday following the vote of the Executive Committee Board in Cairo, Egypt.
Morocco now replaced Guinea who were stripped of the tournament hosting rights in October last year due to concerns about infrastructure and facilities.
The highest contender Algeria announced that it had withdrawn from the race to host the AfCON.
Zambia made it’s bid to host the 2025 AfCON alongside Nigeria and Benin who made a joint bid.
For 2027, the AfCON organisers have selected Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania as the host countries after they made a joint bid.
