In 2014, Caf awarded Nations Cup hosting rights to Cameroon (2019), Ivory Coast (2021) and Guinea (2023).
After Caf’s withdrawal of 2019 hosting rights from Cameroon, there has been uncertainty over Guinea hosting the 2025 Afcon after initially being mandated to stage the 20203 tournament.
Caf president Ahmad Ahmad has confirmed that Guinea has accepted to host the 2025 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) instead, of the 2023 edition. Ivory Coast, which is now set to host in 2023 – lodged an appeal with the Court of Arbitration for Sport against the Caf decision to hand the 2021 tournament to Cameroon.
On 9 January, Caf is set to announce who will host this year’s finals – with both Egypt and South Africa having made bids to replace Cameroon.
