South Africa, Ghana may host Africa Cup of Nations after Ebola threat makes Morocco refuse


PRETORIA: The Confederation of African Football (CAF) is considering the Republic of South Africa and Ghana as two possible candidate countries for hosting the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations after earlier selected host Morocco refused to host the championship. The authorities of Morocco announced on Thursday they decided against holding next year’s Africa Cup of Nations biennial football championship citing concerns over the outbreak of deadly Ebola virus in West Africa. Morocco claims that it made the decision to cancel hosting the 16-nation football tournament, scheduled to run between January 17 and February 8 next year, as it wanted to avoid holding an event involving countries, where Ebola cases were registered, as well as to prevent the expansion of the deadly virus.
