Morocco will host the 2018 CHAN following the decision made by CAF Executive Committee in a meeting held in Nigeria on Saturday.
Kenya was stripped of the hosting rights after failing to provide facilities vital for the competition, notably the stadia as promised in the beginning of the year.
Despite having numerous chances to make things right, Goal understands there was no political will to make the competition a success and most of the process went on in a snail's pace.
The North African nation beat competition from Ethiopia and Equatorial Guinea.
The cities of Casablanca, Agadir, Marakech and Tangier have been selected to host the biannual tournament.
This is a competition played by players plying trade in the domestic league, and it is scheduled to be played on January and February 2018.
Egypt is most likely to replace Kenya as the other team with the decision of the CAF emergency committee, about the final slot since new host Morocco already qualified, is set to be communicated later on Sunday. The team will be from North Zone.
