The Confederation of African Football has announced Equatorial Guinea as the new host of the Africa Cup of Nations 2015 following the decision of the football body to drop Morocco 3 days ago. 

CAF dropped Morocco as host of the football tournament on Tuesday November 11th following the nations request for postponement of the tournament in their country over Ebola fears.

A statement released by CAF this afternoon says the dates for the tournament will remain from Jan. 17-February 8 2015 and that four cities will be used for the tournament: Malabo, Bata, Mongomo and Ebebiyin. See statement bellow.
