The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has given Egypt the right to host the 32nd Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).
The decision was reached at the CAF executive committee meeting held on Tuesday at the Terrou-Bi Hotel in Dakar, Senegal.
Recall that Cameroon was stripped of the hosting right in November 2018 due to delays in preparation for the tournament.
It will be the fourth time the North African country will be hosting the tournament. It hosted and won the 1986 and 2006 editions
The country also hosted the FIFA U17 World Cup finals in 1997 and the FIFA U20 World finals in 2009.
The 2019 AFCON will be the first to accommodate 24 teams. It would also be the first time in recent times it is holding between June and July.
