Egypt has been announced as the host of the 2019 African cup of nations which will hold between June 15 and July 13 after Cameroon was stripped of the hosting right due to delay and slow pace of event preparations.

This was announced by Confederation of African Football (CAF) president Ahmed Ahmed in Dakar on Tuesday after Egypt 
received more votes from the executive committee than South Africa. 

This will be the fourth time the event will take place in Egypt after hosting in 1974,1986 and 2006

But at the main bowl, the visitors expressed dissatisfaction with the grass on the pitch, instructing the Stadium Manager, Gideon Malo to ensure that it is attended to.
