AFCON 2019: Egypt confirms 8 stadia


After securing the right to host the 2019 African Cup of Nations, Egypt has further confirmed they will be using 8 different stadia for the competition.

Egypt beat off competition from South Africa by 16 votes to 1 vote to get the nod.

3 matches will come up at the Cairo stadium, 2 at Alexandria, Ismaila 1, port said 1 and Suez 1.

Egypt last hosted and won the tournament in 2006 and winning the hosting right will breathe a new life into Egyptian football that has been ravaged by violence in recent times.

The number of fans that will be allowed into match venues per game is yet to be determined as only 5000 fans were allowed by African soccer governing body anytime Egyptian club play host in the club competition.
