Cameroon bid for 2016 Nations Cup

Cameroon bid for 2016 Nations Cup

Former African champions Cameroon will bid to host the 2016 African Nations Cup tournament according to their Sports Minister Augustin Edjoa.

"We intend to table our application to host the 2016 event," Edjoa said.

"Cameroon is a great football nation in Africa, and it is unthinkable that it should go for such a long time without hosting the tournament," he said.

The central African country has hosted the tournament just once, in 1972, when it was eliminated 1-0 in the semi-finals by Congo Republic, who went on to win the title.

Cameroon is one of three countries to have won the African Nations Cup four times and the only African country to have been five times to the World Cup finals, where it reached the quarter-finals in 1990.

Isnt it kind of early to be giving up the rights to a tournament thats still 9 years away?? I mean its not the World Cup and any country hosting it will build at most 1 new stadium.
