The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has stripped Cameroon of hosting next year’s Africa Cup of Nations.

CAF said it is because of delays in the progress of Cameroon’s preparation for the tournament, due to start in June. The decision was made at a meeting on Friday in Accra, Ghana, that lasted more than 10 hours. CAF said it will work to “determine a new organising country by the end of the year. In a statement, CAF said

…a number of compliance conditions have not been met” and it did not want to expose the Africa Cup of Nations to “any issues that could impact on the success of the most prestigious African competition”.

Caf added postponing the tournament was not possible due to contractual commitments. The tournament is set to be the first held in June and July and will be expanded from 16 to 24 teams. BBC Sport understands Morocco; having stepped in to hold this year’s African Nations Championship after Kenya were deemed not ready – South Africa and Egypt are all under consideration as replacement hosts.
