Egypt`s Prime Minister، Dr Mostafa Madbouly inspected Cairo International Stadium to follow up preparations for hosting 2019 AFCON.

Egypt won the right to host 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON)، Confederation of African Football (CAF) announced on Tuesday.

Sixteen members of the CAF executive office voted for Egypt، while South Africa received a shy vote.

For the first time، twenty four national teams will participate in the tournament.

The African Nations Cup is scheduled to witness the participation of 24 teams in a first-ever event in the history of African football، where participation was always limited to only 16 teams.

Noteworthy، Egypt submitted their bid alongside South Africa to host the finals after the rights were taken away from Cameroon late last year، according to Goal news website.

According to CAF، Cameroon was not ready to host a successful and expanded 24-team tournament.
