Morocco tables bid to stage Chan 2018

CAF have allowed countries until the end of September to apply to host the tournament which will take place in January next year and the Royal Moroccan Football Federation has officially announced on Saturday that they will bid to host it.

Morocco have put in their bid to host Africa Nations Champions (Chan) 2018.

The Confederation of African Football (Caf) has confirmed that two countries, Equatorial Guinea and Morocco, have submitted bids to host the 2018 African Nations Championship (CHAN).

Caf are looking for new hosts to replace Kenya who lost the rights after failing to meet the African football body's requirements.

Although political instability is being stated as one of the reasons that informed CAF's decision, CAF first vice president Kwesi Nyantakyi has debunked the claims, and revealed that unfinished infrastructure forced CAF to take the decision.

This was the second time Kenya loses the hosting rights to a major sporting competition, after it was stripped of hosting the 1996 African Cup of Nations, which was eventually handed over to South Africa.
