Kenya- Tanzania enter joint AFCON bid

25 September 2014, 13:04

Nairobi - Kenya has reportedly joined forces with the Tanzania Football Federation in a bid to win hosting rights for AFCON 2017.

The Tanzanians had already put forward their own offer to stage the continental event, but feel they may have a better chance of landing the gig if they pair up with their East African neighbours.

The Tanzania Daily News quote a source close to the TFF as saying: "As Tanzania we have already submitted our bid to CAF and they have confirmed receiving it, and the joint bid with Kenya consolidates our chances of being granted the right to host the 2017 AFCON."

The 2017 event remains up for grabs following Libya's withdrawal as host nation, while CAF also recently awarded Cameroon the right to host AFCON 2019 and Ivory Coast and Guinea were selected for the 2021 and 2023 editions respectively.
