The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has rejected Sierra Leone’s request to host their Cote d’Ivoire 2024 African Cup of Nations qualifier against Nigeria in Bo City, its second-largest town.
Sierra Leone had written to CAF, praying to host the African Cup of Nations matchday five qualifier at the newly built 6,000-seater Southern Arena in Bo City.
CAF hinged its decision to turn down the request on the poor hotel facilities in the city. This means that Sierra Leone will have to look on the road to host Nigeria in June this year.
Nigeria are topping Group A of the qualifying series on nine points after three wins from four games, while Guinea Bissau, who caused a major upset when they beat Nigeria in Abuja in the penultimate game, are second on seven points after two wins and a draw.
Sierra Leone are on five points with one win and two draws, with Sao Tome and Principe on one point with only one draw.
