Kenya Confirmed CHAN 2018 Hosts | African News | Scoop.it

Nairobi — THE country will host the 2018 African Nations Championship (CHAN), the Confederation of African Football has confirmed.

 

This follows a meeting of the CAF Executive committee under the leadership of President, Issa Hayatou, at the CAF Headquarters in Cairo, Egypt last Friday.

 

“The CAF Executive Committee has designated Kenya as host of the 2018 African Nations Championship (CHAN), following receipt of necessary government guarantees and complete dossier including the required infrastructure and security,” the football governing body stated in a document made available to this agency on Monday.

 

The CHAN tournament, which features footballers plying their trade in the domestic leagues, would arguably be the biggest sporting event the country would have hosted.
