Nigeria's hopes of co-hosting the 2027 Africa Cup of Nations with Benin Republic have been shattered.

This comes after the Confederation of African Football (CAF), reached a verdict to grant hosting privileges to Kenya, Uganda, and Tanzania instead.

The decision by the Confederation of African Football (CAF) was revealed at the conclusion of its executive committee meeting held on Wednesday.

In a separate development, Morocco secured the rights to host the 2025 edition of the AFCON finals.

Nigeria last hosted Africa's premier football tournament in the year 2000, when the country jointly organized the competition with Ghana.
