AFCON 2025 will take place in Morocco from July to August

The continent's biggest football tournament, AFCON will be organized by Morocco next year, from July to August

The preliminary agreement has been reached between The Confederation of African Football (CAF) and FIFA.

CAF President Patrice Motsepe has refused to give the exact dates for the postponed AFCON to avoid interfering with the first 32-team Club World Cup scheduled for June 2025. , but on Monday, an official from the committee in charge of competitions is reported by RFI to have said there was “an agreement in principle between CAF and the Moroccan Football Federation for the CAN to be held during the summer, more precisely in July and August” 2025.

It is not the first time the African competition has been postponed. The two previous AFCONS were postponed. AFCON 2021 was played in January-February 2022 in Cameroon, and the most recent African Cup, still officially named AFCON 2023, began on January 13 in Côte d’Ivoire, before being won by the host country a week ago.

Qualifying for the AFCON 2025 has still not begun. A preliminary round is scheduled from March 18 to 26, according to the CAF calendar.
