2013 Africa Cup of Nations South Africa

South Africa will host the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations as well as the 2014 African Nations Championship. This has been confirmed by SAFA. I am on my phone, check Kickoff.com for the source.

Edit: here's the source

Quote:
Safa reveals it will host the next African Nations Cup in place of politically-troubled Libya after the two football associations reached an agreement.

The two parties have signed an agreement with regards to the hosting of the 2013 and the 2017 editions of the continent’s prime football tourney.

“In terms of the agreement, Libya will host the 2017 Afcon, which had been awarded to South Africa, while Safa will take over the hosting of the 2013 Afcon tournament as well as the 2014 African Nations Championships (CHAN), which was supposed to be played in Libya.

“The agreement comes following the political upheaval in Libya, but is subject to ratification by the Confederation of African Football (CAF) at its next Executive Committee meeting on Wednesday, 28th September 2011 in Cairo, Egypt,” says Safa.

South Africa last hosted the tournament in 1996, which Bafana Bafana won.

Libya are experiencing political problems after rebels dethroned long-time leader Muammar Gaddafi this week.
This is from SAFA's website:

The 2012 AFCON tournament will be hosted by Equatorial Guinea and Gabon

I'm not excited about this, we would set the standard by hosting it in 2017. We gonna see empty stadiums, watch the space...

Marketing must begin soon. All the stadiums, transportation infrastructure are there the government just needs to encourage the people to watch.

It should be marketed as an African World Cup.

Host Cities

Johannesburg
Cape Town
Durban
Pretoria

PE (some matches) - highly unlikely it will be left out
Bloem (some matches) - perhaps, but usually decent support.

interesting cities there, although it would be more fun if they gave it to the smaller cities instead, i'm talking about places like Nelspruit, Bloem, Port El, Buf-C...) i think.

Getting crowds in the big cities will be difficult so u can imagine how hard it will be to get crowds in the smaller towns

I share your sentiments...they need to start as soon as the Rugby World Cup is over.


I think they will use the following stadiums -

1. Soccer City.
2. Loftus.
3. Peter Mokaba.
4. Mangaung.
5. Moses Mabhida.
6. PE.
7. Cape Town


I don't see Rustenburg getting anything.

so now that we officially know that we will host the 2013 event.... when are we likely to hear the 4 venues?

Most likely is surely Soccer City, Moses Mabhida, Greenpoint and Nelson Mandela?

or do we expect some surprises and maybe 5 venues? surely they would have pressure to spread it around a bit? Polokwane, Mbombela?

Those are given, I think Peter Mokaba will be added. Other venues might be used as training venues. They will make sure that every other world cup cities will benefit out of it.

Why not use more than 4? Little Tunisia had 6 venues in 2004.

OR, will they not focus 2013 on the key cities and then the 2014 tournament they hosting now, use for the smaller centres?
