The Confederation of African Football has confirmed Ghana, Egypt, Sudan, Gabon, Kenya, Algeria and Zimbabwe the seven countries who have bid for the hosting rights of the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations.
CAF’s Executive Committee will decide the host country during one of its sessions next year.
Due to the limited time frame for the organization of the tournament, the CAF Executive Committee will focus on the host with acceptable infrastructure and facilities required (stadiums, training grounds, accommodation, communications etc.) in making a decision.
CAF opened nominations for bids on 23 August 2014, following the withdrawal of Libya, original host of the 31st edition of the Africa Cup of Nations.
