The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has re-opened bids for the 2025 Africa Cup of Nations.

CAF formally stripped Guinea of the rights to host AFCON 2025 on Saturday.

Guinea’s inability was due to its infrastructure and facilities not being ready to host a 24-team tournament.

It would be recalled that erstwhile president of Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Amaju Pinnick once stated that the country would be willing to co-host AFCON 2025 with next door neighbour, Benin Republic.

Cote d’ voire will host the next edition of the AFCON in 2023.

The rights withdrawal followed a meeting on Friday in Conakry between Guinea’s interim president, Col. Mamady Doumbouya, and CAF President Patrice Motsepe.
