CHAN 2018: Morocco Replaces Kenya As Host
The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has handed the hosting right of the Championship for All Nations (CHAN) 2018 to Morocco.
This is after CAF stripped original host, Kenya, of the right to host the 5th edition of CHAN due to inadequate preparedness and infrastructure.
However, some people sight the political situation in Kenya as the major reason.
“The Emergency Committee of the Confederation Africaine de Football, chaired by Mr Ahmad, met on 14 October 2017 in Lagos, Nigeria, and unanimously decided to grant the organization of the 5th edition of the Total African Nations Championship to the Royal Moroccan Football Federation.
“The candidacy of Morocco was preferred to that of Equatorial Guinea, another country to have submitted a valid application.” CAF said in a statement forwarded to Bounce News.
CHAN 2018 is scheduled to hold from 12 January to 4 February, and will bring together 16 national teams composed exclusively of players playing in the national championships of their respective countries.
