CAF President optimistic Egypt will be ready to AFCON

Published on: 12 February 2019

Confederation of African Football (CAF) President Ahmad Ahmad says he is confident Egypt will organize a successful Africa Cup of Nations in June this year. 

Egypt beat South Africa to host the finals after the rights were taken away from Cameroon late last year.

"I am fully confident in Egypt's ability to organize the tournament because the Egyptian government and the Football Federation have started preparations since the announcement of the host country," Ahmad said.

The 2019 Afcon will start on June 21.
