(Business in Cameroon) - Egypt has finally been chosen as host country for the AfCON 2019 whose organization was recently withdrawn from Cameroon in November 2018 on a decision of the African Football Confederation (CAF).

Though this decision is considered a “flagrant injustice” by the Cameroonian government, it does not stop its desire to complete works by the end of the first quarter of 2019. This way, the country will be ready to host the AfCON 2021 as suggested by CAF.

Let’s recall that Cameroon committed over XAF1,000 billion to build stadiums, access roads as well as health and hotel facilities. The country last hosted the AfCON 1972.
