Morocco emerges new host of 2018 CHAN

Atlas Lions of Morocco

Morocco will replace Kenya as hosts of the 2018 African Nations Championship (CHAN), organisers announced.

The emergency committee of the African Football Confederation (Caf) met Saturday in Lagos and unanimously chose to give Morocco the green light ahead of Equatorial Guinea.

Morocco, Equatorial Guinea and Ethiopia then submitted fresh bids for the tournament.

Kenya lost the right to host the 2018 event following a Confederation of African Football (Caf) executive committee meeting in Accra. A third candidate, Ethiopia, was not considered because it did not provide a letter of guarantee from its government. Following the designation of Morocco as hosts, Egypt, who were beaten by Morocco in the Northern Zone playoffs, qualified for the tournament.
