Kenya Likely to Snatch AWCON Hosting Rights from Ghana

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) is likely to strip Ghana off its rights to host the 2018 Africa Women’s Championship less than three months to the tournament.

According to multiple sources, CAF is convinced that the West African nation will not be ready to stage a successful showpiece.

This is due to the revelations of the Ghanaian investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas expose and government’s involvement in the affairs of football, putting Kenya on track to be awarded the hosting rights.

an insider at Caf tells Ducor Sports.

Ghana was handed the hosting rights in 2016 but have done little to resolve the crisis rocking their FA for the past months and have to show by Monday 27th August that they will be ready to stage the continental showpiece.

A bold step to re-award the tournament is highly expected based on the Fifa verdict that is set to be made next week that may see the local football association suspended.

It will be based on the request that the world’s football governing body has made to the Ghanaian government  requesting it to withdraw a petition to start GFA’s liquidation process by the start of this week.

The biennial international football championship organised for the women’s national teams of Africa, is scheduled to kick off from 17th November to 1st December 2018.

Kenya already has infrastructure in place as it has two standard stadiums namely Kasarani Stadium and Nyayo which were renovated to host CHAN 2018 which hosting rights were snatched from the East Africa’s economic giant.
