Cameroonian authorities are preparing their file to convince the inspection mission of the Confederation of African Football, CAF that they are ready to host the 2019 or 2021 African Nations Cup.

CAF on February 21 announced the members of the inspection committee for the 2019 and 2021 African Nations Cup bidders and the inspection programme.

“The group of experts will be in Cote d’Ivoire and Guinea in April, Algeria and Cameroon in May, then finally DR Congo and Zambia in July 2014″, a CAF release read.

Last month the mission started visits to bidding countries with their first point of call in Ivory Coast and Guinea.

In May the inspection team would be in Cameroon and in readiness, the Cameroon authorities sent a delegation to carry out the ground work and have a solid file to present to CAF.

A member of the delegation told lion4life that there is a possibility of including Bamenda and Bafoussam as host cities while the only hitch seems to be Garoua.

“There is no way Garoua will be left out because of lack of hotels, so we are going look into renovating Hotel le Benue”, he said.

The delegation was made up of stakeholders from different ministries, one of them, Tourism in charge of hotels and recreational facilities.

Everything is being put in place to convince CAF inspection mission. The hosts would be announced in September during CAF Executive Committee meeting.
