Caf has confirmed it will announce the hosts of the 2006 African Nations Cup at an annual meeting on 24 October in Cairo.
The 2006 competition will, for the first time, be used as a qualifying event to select Africa’s five representatives in the World Cup later that same year.
Algeria, Libya, Ivory coast and Egypt are the four countries vying for the privilege.
The representatives of the four countries will be each allowed to make a 30-minute long presentation for the Caf executive board who will then have a closed meeting to vote for the new host.
The decision will be announced by Caf President Issa Hayatou soon after the meeting.
