The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has offered South Africa hosting rights to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).
South African Football Association, SAFA, president Danny Jordaan confirmed the news to Goal, and said that their current financial situation may not be able to allow them to host the tournament.
Jordaan told the SAFA AGM in Sandton on Sunday that the continental football governing body has asked South Africa to seriously consider taking over as AFCON 2019 hosts.
The SAFA president returned to South Africa on Sunday morning after attending CAF’s Extraordinary Executive Committee meeting in Accra‚ Ghana, where the decision to dump Cameroon was taken.
The report also revealed that SAFA would meet the South African government first before making a decision on whether to accede to the request.
South Africa last staged the Cup of Nations in 2013 which was won by Nigeria.
The 2019 event is scheduled for June 15 to July 13, a change from its traditional January-February slot and it will be the first to feature 24 teams — up from 16 at the 2017 edition in Gabon.
