Egypt has been known for its ability to host the biggest sports tournaments as the country has one of the best infrastructures in the continent, besides the huge passion of its people towards sports, especially football.

Since 1996, a total of 16 teams were allowed to participate at the tournament but for the first time in history, 24 nations will compete to win the title in 2019.

Since the launch of Egypt's official bid to host the tournament, the Egyptian Football Federation announced the stadiums which would host the games.
