On Thursday evening, CAF announced that it had received several bids to host the 2027 AFCON, among them a joint bid from Kenya, Uganda, and Tanzania.

The African Football Confederation (CAF) acknowledged receiving bids from Algeria, Botswana, and Egypt, as well as declarations of interest from the three nations. The African Nations Championships (CHAN) in 2018 and the Africa Cup of Nations in 1996 were the two times that Kenya gained the opportunity to host the continental tournament finals, but both times the hosting privileges were revoked since the country lacked stadiums that had received international approval.

Speaking to reporters after the joint bid, Sports Cabinet Secretary Ababu Namwamba insisted it was time for AFCON to come to East Africa. “Our joint bid with Uganda and Tanzania for the AFCON 2027 is a strong one.” “It is about time the Africa Cup of Nations comes to East Africa,” Namwamba told reporters.

The last day for submission is May 28, while the winner of the bid will be announced in September.
