The Sowetan newspaper reports that SAFA have informed CAF, the African football governing body, of their intention to bid for the hosting rights for the 2015 African Cup of Nations.

South Africa, successful hosts and winners of the 1996 edition of the tournament, recently helped organise a successful world cup and will be hoping to use that momentum to win the hosting rights again.

Gabon and Equatorial Guinea will host the tournament in 2012 and Libya will follow in 2013 as the tournament switches to odd numbers.
