Morocco will replace Kenya as hosts of the 2018 African Nations Championship –Chan.
The emergency committee of the African Football Confederation -CAF unanimously decided to give Morocco the green light ahead of Equatorial Guinea after a meeting.
Meanwhile a third candidate, Ethiopia, was not considered because it did not provide a letter of guarantee from its government.
Reports say original hosts Kenya fell behind with five-venue preparations for the biennial 16-team tournament, which runs from January 12-February 4, leading them to be stripped of the hosting rights last month.
