CAF Moves 2023 Africa Cup of Nations Finals To 2024

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) Executive Committee meeting held this Sunday has moved the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) finals to the start of 2024.

The biennial tournament was supposed to be played in June and July 2023 in the Ivory Coast.

CAF resolved to move the tournament from 2023 to 2024 because the rainy season in the Ivory Coast peaks in June and July.

CAF President Patrice Motsepe confirmed the latest development at the CAF Executive Committee in Rabat, Morocco on Sunday.

This is the second time CAF has been forced to shift the dates for the tournament.

In 2021, CAF moved the AFCON finals to January and February 2022 because Cameroon was unable to host the competition in the June-July period because of the rainy season.

The CAF Executive Committee meeting also resolved that the CAF Champions League final reverts to home and away format.

It was also resolved that the African Super League will commence in August 2023.
