Cameroon won the 2017 African Cup of Nations
Reigning champions Cameroon has been stripped of the right to host next year’s African Cup of Nations.
It comes after serious delays with preparations and with Cameroon in the midst of a violent separatist rebellion near two of the planned venues, the Confederation of African Football (CAF) said.
Africa’s governing body of football made the decision Friday after a meeting of its executive committee. CAF president Ahmad announced a new bidding process was to be opened, with countries having until the end of December to submit bids. The tournament starts in June.
