But this duel did not take place on the football field, but in the CAF offices for the right to host the tournament. South Africa and Egypt both announced serious intentions in hosting the tournament. Despite South Africa seen as favorites after hosting the World Cup in 2010, Egypt was chosen as the host for the 2019 African Cup of Nations.
