CAIRO, Nov 16 (Reuters) - The Democratic Republic of Congo
have withdrawn their bid to host the 2015 or 2017 African
Nations Cups, leaving just Morocco and South Africa in the
running, the Confederation of African Football said on Tuesday.
African football's governing body will decide in January on
the outcome of the bids but with just two countries left in the
running it will only have to allocate one tournament to each.
The next Nations Cup finals in 2012 are being co-hosted by
Equatorial Guinea and Gabon, after which the tournament switches
from every even year to every odd year.
The 2013 finals have been awarded to Libya.
Morocco and South Africa were serious rivals for the right
to host the 2010 World Cup which went to South Africa. Both have
previously hosted the Nations Cup, Morocco in 1988 and South
Africa in 1996.
