Nigeria, Ghana, Benin Consider Combined 2025 AFCON Bid

Nigeria, Ghana and Benin Republic are in talks for a joint bid to host the Africa Cup of Nations in 2025.

Guinea was initially granted the hosting rights of the continental showpiece but the Confederation of African Football (CAF) rescinded the decision due to the country’s lack of funds to put in place the required facilities.

CAF recently re-opened the bidding process for the 2025 AFCON tournament.

Former President of the Nigeria Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick, a few months ago said the country will bid for the competition alongside neighbours, Benin Republic.

Ghana is now looking to join the two countries to host the biennial competition.

“There’s a discussion that Ghana should bid with the likes of Nigeria and Benin. We are still considering it. We have not taken a decision yet but there is that discussion that we should get sister countries so that we can put in that bid,” Ghana’s sports minister, Mustapha Ussif was quoted by

It would be recalled that Ghana and Nigeria co-hosted the 2008 edition of the AFCON.

The continent’s football governing body expects finalised bids for the 2025 AFCON, including documents, proposed host cities and government guarantees, to reach its Cairo headquarters by December 16.
