CAF Denies AFCON 2025 postponement

Hespress ENWednesday 5 June 2024 – 19:17

CAF refuted recent reports in French newspaper L’Equipe claiming the Africa Cup of Nations finals, scheduled for Morocco in summer 2025, would be postponed to early 2026.

An official statement said the Executive Office will meet to determine the final dates.

L’Equipe reported the tournament’s delay due to scheduling conflicts with the expanded 32-team Club World Cup held in the USA during summer 2025.

They quoted CAF Secretary-General Veron Mosengo, who proposed a 2026 postponement to accommodate the Club World Cup scheduled between June 15th and July 13th, 2025.

Mosengo expressed concerns: “We could hold AFCON after the Club World Cup, but this would burden African players participating in both tournaments. It wouldn’t be ideal after a long season.”
