The four new stadiums being built by Angola for the 2010 African Nations Cup finals will be ready at least six months before the event, government officials have said.
Angola say they will be ready to host the 2010 Nations Cup
Angola is building new venues in the capital and provincial towns of Benguela, Cabinda and Lubango to host the 16-team tournament.
Candida Narciso, who heads a parliamentary commission overseeing preparations, said the venues would be completed in good time to test facilities before the event, traditionally hosted at the start of the year.
Angola plan a 40,000-seater stadium at Luanda's university complex and 20,000-seater stadiums in the three other venues.
The 2010 Nations Cup finals in Angola will come six months before the first-ever World Cup finals in Africa, which are being hosted by South Africa.
The next Nations Cup finals are in Ghana next January.
