Afcon 2015 Hosting Issue | SAFA is not hosting AFCON 2015

The Africa Cup of Nations Hosting issue has created difficulties to organize the AFCON 2015 because The South African Football Association (SAFA) has decided to not to host this event.

President of SAFA said, “However, due to the Ebola virus, which is ravaging the African continent, Morocco has requested that CAF postpone the tournament from January/February to a later date.”

“The issue being raised whether South Africa is the Plan B is neither here nor there because Morocco are the official hosts of AFCON 2015. That talk of us being Plan B is unfair,” said Jordaan, adding that CAF had asked South Africa together with six other African countries whether they would come in should Morocco pull out.
