ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia (AP) — Cameroon has been chosen to host the 2019 African Cup of Nations while Ivory Coast will hold the tournament in 2021 and Guinea in 2023.
The Confederation of African Football announced the decisions on Saturday after a two-day executive committee meeting in Ethiopia.
Africa’s football body also repeated its backing for FIFA President Sepp Blatter for re-election next year.
CAF President Issa Hayatou said “we wouldn’t have trusted him (Blatter) had we not seen what he had done for us in the past.” Hayatou said the 78-year-old Blatter had helped Africa host its first World Cup in South Africa in 2010.
CAF said that it was extending a ban on games in the Ebola-affected West African nations of Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia until further notice.
