Gabon to Host 2017 African Cup of Nations


Gabon was named on Wednesday as the hosts of the next African Nations Cup finals in 2017.

The 2012 co-hosts won a vote by the Confederation of African Football’s executive committee in Cairo on Wednesday ahead of Algeria and Ghana.

Gabon will use four venues for the 16-team tournament, set for January 2017.

Gabon replaces war-torn Libya, who withdrew last year as 2017 hosts because of the civil conflict raging in the country.
