Al-Salam stadium to replace Port Said in AFCON
About a month ago Al-Salam was officially removed from the list of stadiums set to host the 2019 AFCON. However the tournament’s organizing committee decided to take Al-Salam stadium back into consideration as a replacement for Port Said stadium.
Now the six stadiums set to host the tournament are the Cairo international stadium, 30th of June, Suez stadium, Alexandria stadium, Al-Salam stadium, and Ismailia stadium.
The AFCON was set to take place in Cameroon this summer. Nonetheless due to poor organization the Confederation of African Football (CAF) stripped them from their hosting rights.
