Riyadh - Qatar has not received an official request to host the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations but it is "ready" to help in organizing it, said the head of the Gulf country's Football Association.
Qatar was not "officially asked to host" the continental tournament after Morocco was stripped of the right to stage the event.
"If officially asked, Qatar is ready to offer any help in hosting the African Cup due to its strong relation with Issa Hayatou, president of the Confederation of African Football (CAF)," said Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa bin Ahmed al-Thani in a statement.
