AWC 2018: CAF Yet To Decide On Ghana As Host
The Confederation of African Football (CAF) says it is yet to take a decision on striping Ghana of the hosting rights for the African Women’s Cup of Nations scheduled for November.
Former Ghana FA boss, Kwesi Nyantakyi has already been suspended from football activities following an investigative story that allegedly exposed him taking bribe.
As a result football activities were suspended in Ghana in June, slowing down renovation of proposed venues for the tournament.
There have been talks that Ghana will also be striped of the hosting rights, with South Africa, Cameroon and Nigeria placed on standby.
But CAF said in a statement that no definite decision has been taken.
“Following recent media reports, the Confédération Africaine de Football (CAF) authoritatively confirms that there has been no decision regarding the hosting rights of the Total Women’s Africa Cup of Nations Ghana 2018 scheduled for 17 November to 1 December.
“The subject will be discussed at the next meeting of the Organising Committee for Women's Football to be held in Cairo, Egypt, on Wednesday, 12 September 2018. The report of the last inspection visit is among items on the agenda.
“The final decision will be taken by the CAF Executive Committee at its meeting on 27-28 September 2018 in Egypt.
There were reports that CAF may stripe Cameroon of hosting the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations over their inability to get the required infrastructure in place ahead of schedule.
