The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has confirmed that the South African Football Association (SAFA) and the Egyptian Football Association (EFA) have submitted bids to host the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

Cameroon were stripped of the rights after they were adjudged to be unprepared for the tourney. Security issues were also raised as a major source of concern for CAF.

CAF, therefore, opened window for nations to bid to host the tournament, which is scheduled to start from 15 June and end on 13 July next year.

In a statement on Saturday, CAF announced that Egypt, who last hosted in 2006, and South Africa, who last hosted in 2013, had submitted bids on deadline day of 14 December to host the tournament.

International consulting firm Roland Berger is expected to review the bids and seek additional materials and conduct inspection visits where required.

The hosts will be announced on January 9, 2019, according to CAF.
