Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania to host 2027 AFCON


The hosting rights for the 2027 Africa Cup of Nations have been awarded to the East African joint bid, also known as the “Pamoja Bid,” while Morocco won the 2025 hosting rights.

The excellent news was announced on Wednesday morning by the CAF president Patrice Motsepe shortly after the body’s executive committee meeting held in Cairo, Egypt.

To win this bid, the Pamoja defeated bids from Algeria, Botswana and Senegal.

Of all those countries, Algeria were the main contenders but decided to pull out of the race a day before the CAF Executive Committee meeting.

This is the first time East Africa will be hosting Africa’s prestigious football tournament since 1970 finals in Sudan.

In related developments, Algeria, Zambia, and a joint proposal from Benin and Nigeria withdrew their bids before the voting during the Confederation of African Football’s executive committee meeting on Wednesday in Cairo, making Morocco the default host of the 2025 competition.
