Hosts Egypt has announced that five different venues will be used for next year's African Nations Cup finals.

The three-week event will be held from 20 January to 10 February 2006.

The matches are scheduled to be played in Alexandria, Cairo, Ismaili and Port Said.

Two stadiums are to be used in the capital Cairo, whose international stadium will also host the opening match and the final.

The Cairo stadium is being extensively refurbished for the event.

However, the other venue in the capital is still to be decided between the Arab Contractors stadium or the Military stadium.

All the venues were proposed by Egypt in their unsuccessful bid to win the right to host the 2010 World Cup finals.
