Morocco announces offer to host 2018 CHAN

Morocco announces offer to host 2018 CHAN”

Despite Sports Minister Isaac Asiamah declaring Ghana's readiness to replace Kenya as 2018 African Nations Championship host, the country failed to table an official bid.

There was a huge outpouring of the desire for the West African country to host the competition for home-based player after a successful hosting of the WAFU.

Original host Kenya fell behind with five-venue preparations for the biennial 16-team tournament, leading it to be stripped of the hosting rights last month.

But Football Kenya Federation remains optimistic that Stars can still parade in the January competition, though that will depend on the new host to be named by Caf in the coming weeks.

Following a meeting last week CECAFA secretary general Nicholas Musonye said: "The members expressed solidarity with Kenya over the failure to host the Africa Nations Championship (Chan) but assured Kenyans they will encourage Kenya to host the Challenge Cup in November and early December".

Kenya lost the right to host the 2018 event following a Confederation of African Football (Caf) executive committee meeting in Accra.

The situation will also end the Black Stars B dream to play at the CHAN 2018 tournament having failed to qualify following a defeat to Burkina Faso.

The CAF said a decision on where the tournament, the second-tier competition in Africa behind the Cup of Nations, will be held would be made within 15 days of the deadline.
