Meeting on Wednesday September 27 at its headquarters in Cairo, the CAF Executive Committee designated the host countries for the 2025 and 2027 AFCONs. These two editions went to Morocco and the trio of Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania respectively.
Although the suspense was lifted before the vote for CAN 2025, due to the last-minute withdrawal of competing bids, the Kingdom of Morocco was well placed to win the vote.
According to the summary of the technical report produced by the firm in charge of auditing the candidate countries, consulted by Sport News Africa, Morocco scored the highest against its competitors. With a final technical score of 85/100, Morocco came out on top ahead of Algeria (72/100), Zambia (49/100) and the duo of Benin and Nigeria (46/100).
The firm rated all the candidate countries on 9 points, including the socio-political situation, security, stadiums, other infrastructures and the financial capacity to organize the event.
