FG should consider hosting CHAN in 2018 – FCT FA boss

Mr Musa Talle, FCT FA Chairman on Sunday called on Federal Government to consider hosting the Championship of African Nations (CHAN) football tournament in 2018.
Talle made the call in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Abuja while reacting to the stripping of the hosting right from Kenya.

He said hosting CHAN in Nigeria would generate huge revenue for the country, stressing that “Nigeria can go for CHAN hosting right, which will go a long way in improving our economy.

“It would also improve the welfare of Nigerian youths.”

Kenya was recently stripped of CHAN hosting right by Confederation of African Football (CAF).

CAF President Ahmad Ahmad announced the decision after considering the report of the inspection team.

The CAF inspection team was not satisfied with Kenya’s ability to fix the designated four venues for the event before the championship.

Only one of the four venues is ready for the 16-nation football event slated for Jan. 12 to Feb. 4, 2018.
