Zambia’s President Edgar Lungu says his country will bid to host the 2025 Africa Cup of Nations. Zambia has never hosted the tournament before.
This development is coming after Zambia successfully staged the Under-20 Nations Cup which they also won on Sunday.
President Lungu made the declaration that Zambia would bid for the Africa Cup of Nations in eight years time after meeting with Confederation of African Football (CAF) president Issa Hayatou on Monday.
He said; “I don’t know the bidding process, but as a politician, I am bidding right now. I am bidding on behalf of all Zambians,”
“We can improve on the hotels, roads, and transport.”
