The Confederation of African Football (CAF) will visit Nigeria and the Benin Republic between March 31 and April 2 to inspect facilities for the 2025 Africa Cup of Nations.
Nigeria and their next-door neighbors, the Benin Republic, have put up a joint bid to co-host Africa’s flagship soccer event.
The CAF team is expected to inspect stadiums, training facilities, hotels, and other important facilities that will ensure the smooth running of the competition.
Morocco, Algeria, Zambia, and South Africa are the other countries that have submitted bids to host the biennial event.
Guinea was originally scheduled to host the competition but was stripped of the right due to inadequacy and the speed of progress in preparations.
It will be recalled that Nigeria co-hosted the AFCON in 2000 with Ghana.
