Host SelectionEdit

It was expected that Zimbabwe will host this edition but it was sidelined by the CAF on 8 February 1999 in Abidjan, Ivory Coast for non-compliance with the specifications, the CAF announced that they would be receiving applications for the new hosts until 10 March 1999.

Bids :

Egypt, Ghana, Morocco and Nigeria, were determined by the CAF to be compliant with the host criteria. Later, Egypt withdrew. A joint bid was formed between Ghana and Nigeria.

The organization of the 2000 Africa Cup of Nations was awarded jointly to Ghana and Nigeria on 15 March 1999 by the CAF Executive Committee meeting in Cairo, Egypt. Voters had a choice between three countries : Ghana, Morocco and Nigeria. This is the first time ever that the African Cup was co-hosted by two countries.

This is also the second time that Nigeria has hosted the African Cup after 1980 and the third time for Ghana after 1963 and 1978
