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.
