The Africa Cup has been postponed until 2024


The 34th edition of Africa Cup will not play, as planned, in June 2023, but will be played in January 2024 because the schedule is so tight.

The decision, motivated by Qatar World Cup 2022made it official Patrice Motsepe, president of the CAF, at a press conference held in Morocco. “The official dates will be announced soon. We accept the advice we are receiving, we don’t want to take any risks because it is not beneficial for the whole movement to play a tournament unnoticed. We need to postpone it. , ”Motsepe said.

The main reason is that, since the World Cup is in the middle of the season, league competitions have ended too late which will be a hindrance to the preparation of the participating teams in Africa Cup. Without further ado, the final day of Serie A will be played on June 4 next year, while competition in Africa is due to start on the 23rd of the same month.

What hasn’t changed is the venue, which will continue to be Ivory Coast. “I am happy and admire the infrastructure system that has been made available to host the African Cup. It will be a great reception,” Motsepe stressed.
