Cameroon risks losing AFCON 2019 hosting rights

The 2019 African Cup Of Nations Tournament hosts Cameroon risks being deprived off the rights to host the prestigious tournament on the African continent due to unpreparedness.

This has been cited by CAF President Ahmad Ahmad during an interview with French radio station RFI saying “Let CAF meet at the end of the month, and you will hear, by our means of communication, what is the position of CAF in relation to that,”

“There will be a decision or there will be an ultimatum. We need to meet together, with the members of the (Executive) Committee.

“What I can tell you is that it is not CAF that withdraws AFCON from one country or another. It is the country that is not ready and that is (what) withdraws itself. CAF simply puts a specification.

“You are ready, we are organising, you are not ready, it means that you are withdrawing yourself from this organisation.

“The reality is that it is the country that wants or does not want. And the reproach must go to the country, not to CAF.”  He said. Focus now shifts to see how ready Cameroon will be for the 2019 AFCON Tournament
