The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has re-opened bids for the 2025 Africa Cup of Nations.
Guinea was initially awarded the hosting right but CAF formally stripped the West-African Nation of the rights last weekend.
The rights withdrawal followed a meeting on Friday in Conakry between Guinea’s Interim President, Col. Mamady Doumbouya, CAF President, Patrice Motsepe and the General Secretary, Veron Moshengo-Omba
Guinea, one of the poorest Nations on the Continent had formally stated it isn’t ready to host the competition.
Guinea’s inability is due to its infrastructure and facilities not being ready to host a 24-team tournament.
Cote d’ voire will host the next edition of the AFCON in 2023.
