African Cup of Nations pushed back to 2022

African Cup of Nations pushed back to 2022

Friday 3rd July 2020

The 2021 African Cup of Nations has been postponed until January 2022.

The tournament was originally supposed to be played in January 2021 and had been pushed back to July earlier this year. The decision to delay until January 2022 gives time for the qualification matches to take place, and also avoids the rainy season in the host nation, Cameroon.

It of course means that the competition will take place in the same calendar year as the World Cup in Qatar, meaning a very busy year for the elite African nations.

The 32 team tournament will be played in 5 host cities: Yaounde, Douala, Limbe, Garoua and Bafoussam.
