Kenya will host the 2018 African Nations Championship (CHAN), the Confederation of African Football.

This follows a meeting of the CAF Executive committee under the leadership of President, Issa Hayatou, at the CAF Headquarters in Cairo, Egypt.

The CHAN tournament, which features footballers plying their trade in the domestic leagues, would arguably be the biggest sporting event the country would have hosted.

Kenya was initially scheduled to host the CAF Africa Cup of Nations in 1996 but lost the rights owing to inadequate preparations.

The tournament was eventually handed to South Africa who eventually won it.
