CAF Announces New Date For 2025 AFCON

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) on Friday announced new dates for the CAF TotalEnergies African Cup of Nations (AFCON).

The foremost African football governing body fixed the next continental showpiece, which will hold in Morocco, for Dec. 21 2025 to Jan. 18, 2026.

The date was approved on Friday after CAF Executive Committee met.

It also announced a new date for Women African Cup of Nations (WAFCON) which will also take place in Morocco.

In a post on its website, CAF disclosed that the Women’s tournament which was scheduled for this year has now been postponed to hold from July 5 to July 26, 2025.

The President of CAF, Patrice Motsepe, attributed the delay in the announcement of the dates to the extensive global football calendar.

He, however, expressed optimism that the tournaments in Morocco would be the best in the continent’s history.

Motsepe added that CAF was committed to prioritising the interests of African players plying their trade in Europe.

“The announcement of the dates of the CAF TotalEnergies AFCON Morocco 2025 took much longer than expected, as there were complex and at times challenging discussions with various interested parties, in the light of the extensive International and Domestic Match Calendars.

“CAF is committed to protecting and advancing the interests of African players, playing in football clubs in Europe and worldwide.

“CAF is also committed to building mutually beneficial relationships with the ECA, UEFA, other Football Confederations and FIFA.

“We will continue to make significant progress in developing and ensuring that African Football is globally competitive and amongst the best in the World,” Mosepe said. (NAN)
