Football: 2018 CHAN holds in Kenya

2018 African Nations Championships (CHAN) - Kenya has won the bid to host the 2018 African Nations Championships (CHAN), Football Kenya Federation President Sam Nyamweya said here.

Nyamweya said the decision to give Kenya the nod was taken at the Executive Committee of African soccer's governing body, CAF, held in Cairo, Egypt, last Friday.

It will be the biggest African football tournament to be hosted by Kenya.

PANA reports that the East African nation was billed to host the 1996 African Cup of Nations, but opted out, citing last minute hitches.

Consequently, CAF picked South Africa to host the event.
