The south African football federation say they are not interested in hosting the 2020 women’s African cup of nations.

Safa’s new acting chief executive officer Gay Mokoena says they will put in all their efforts to try and host the 2023 fifa women’s World Cup. South Africa are one of seven candidates on the hunt to host the 2023 women’s World Cup and have a 13 December deadline to provide hosting agreement guarantees and submitted detailed bid plans to Fifa.

if they succeed to get the hosting rights they will become the first African country too host 2 world soccer jamborees after the 2010 world cup they hosted.

Congo who were scheduled to host this female soccer jamboree nest year pulled out of hoisting the tournament leaving the Confederation of African Football (Caf) to search for a new host nation barely a year to kick off.

It means Caf are now set to issue another formal tender to prospective bidders for the hosting of the tournament, one of the many decisions made by their executive committee at their meeting in Cairo on Thursday.

Even though the date for the 2020 women’s Africa Cup of Nations is yet to be made public, football lovers are waiting to see if it would be played as usual in the months of November – December as was the case in Ghana and Cameroon in the 2 previous editions.
