Cairo – 19 July 2019: CAF President, Ahmad Ahmad, hailed the organization committee’s efforts during 2019 Africa Cup of Nations taking place in Egypt between 21 June and 19 July.

Egypt won the rights to host the tournament after being selected over South Africa.

The 2019 African Cup of nations was initially scheduled to be hosted by Cameroon. However, Cameroon was stripped of hosting the tournament for serious delays in preparations.

Six stadiums in Egypt hosted the tournament which witnessed the participation of 24 teams for the first time in the history.
