SAFA ponders AFCON venues
Johannesburg - The host cities and stadiums for next year's African Cup of Nations will be announced on April 4.
The South African Football Association (SAFA) says the match venues will be made public during a visit by Confederation of African Football officials.
Representatives from eight bidding venues were presenting their cases to SAFA on Monday.
South Africa could use seven stadiums for the 16-team event in January and February next year, the most ever at a Cup of Nations. Organisers say those built for the 2010 World Cup will be preferred.
Soweto's 90,000-plus FNB Stadium, which hosted the World Cup final when it was known as Soccer City, will likely be the tournament's centre point.
South Africa took over the 2013 African Cup from troubled Libya. Libya will host in 2017.
