Nigeria to host 2016 Africa Beach Soccer Cup of Nations

Nigeria has been chosen as the host of this year’s Africa Soccer Cup of Nations.

This was confirmed by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) on Tuesday evening.

“Considering indeed that the Fifa Beach Soccer World Cup might be held early 2017, and that Caf in odd years do organize three major events back to back, namely the Africa Cup of Nations followed by the U20 and U17 Cup of Nations from January to April 2017, the Caf Executive Committee decided to ease the overall calendar of events by organizing the Beach Soccer Cup of Nations every even years from now on,” the letter from CAF read.

“Hence, we look forward to a tremendous competition and to meet your team as soon as possible to start the preparations of the said competition.”

The tournament will be played in Lagos in December and will serve as a qualifier for the 2017 FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup in Bahamas.
