Morocco will most likely stage next year’s CHAN after CAF stripped Kenya the hosting rights last month for failing to meet the requirements.

Morocco as well as oil-rich Equatorial Guinea and Ethiopia are the countries who beat the September 30 deadline for the submission of bids to host the bi-ennial competition reserved for domestic league players.

“The CAF executive committee are favourably disposed to awarding the hosting rights to Morocco because the king and government are committed to it,” a top source informed SCORENigeria.

Morocco are also believed to have supported the candidacy of president Ahmad for the top CAF post.

The North African nation last hosted a major African football tournament, AFCON 1988.

They had a major falling out with CAF when they withdrew as hosts of the 2015 AFCON for fear of the spread of the deadly Ebola.

Morocco are also seen as a possible replacement for Cameroon to host the expanded AFCON 2019.

Reports have suggested they are preparing to bid for the recently expanded FIFA World Cup in 2026.
