Zambia could win the right to host the 2019 Africa Cup “unopposed” following the withdrawal of Uganda and uncertainty of Kenya’s bid.

Uganda has failed to get government support while Kenya also still has to secure state support as well as consensus in its football federation about pushing in a bid.

The situation in East Africa leaves Zambia as the sole and leading bid nation; but unconfirmed reports indicate that the DRC is still planning on pushing in a bid.

CAF has set 25th November as deadline for receipt of bids from nations wishing to host the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.
