The South African Football Association (Safa) will not come to the aid of the Confederation of African Football (CAF)‚ who are desperately seeking a new host for the 2020 Africa Women’s Cup of Nations.

The CAF executive meet on Thursday to discuss a range of issues‚ and one of the items on the agenda‚ as seen by SowetanLIVE‚ is to probe the “willingness” of South Africa to parachute in as emergency hosts of the women’s championship.

But acting Safa CEO Gay Mokoena says the country will not accept the pleas of CAF as they instead focus resources and funds on their bid to stage the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup. Argentina‚ Australia ‚ Brazil‚ Colombia‚ Japan and South Korea are the other bids on the table‚ with the deadline to complete the registration December 13 this year.

All infrastructure is also already in place with the stadia and facilities from the 2010 men’s World Cup there to be used.
