Nigeria has lost the joint bid with Benin Republic to host the African Cup of Nations 2027, as Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania are listed joint hosts of the 2027 tournament according to AFP reports.

This comes after the Minister of Sports Development Senator John Owan Enoh arrived in Egypt on Tuesday with representatives of the Nigeria Football Federation to bid to host AFCON 2027.

Recall that Techrectory reports that Nigeria’s only hosting of the AFCON was in 1980 when Christian Chukwu led the team to victory in front of enthusiastic home fans, including former President Shehu Shagari.

The joint hosting with Ghana ended in disappointment as Cameroon’s Indomitable Lions claimed the trophy at the National Stadium in Lagos.
