Morocco will replace Kenya as hosts of the 2018 African Nations Championship (CHAN), organizers announced Sunday.

The emergency committee of the African Football Confederation (CAF) met Saturday in Lagos, Lagos and unanimously decided to give Morocco the green light ahead of Equatorial Guinea. A third candidate, Ethiopia, was not considered because it did not provide a letter of guarantee from its government.

Original host Kenya fell behind with five-venue preparations for the biennial 16-team tournament, which runs from January 12 to February 4, leading them to be stripped of the hosting rights last month.
