2023 Afcon postponed to 2024 – CAF

2023 Afcon will now be played between January and February 2024, Caf have confirmed the postponement of the Africa Cup of Nations finals scheduled for the Ivory Coast from June 2023 to January 2024.

African football’s governing body, through President Dr Patrice Motsepe, announced on Sunday that the 34th edition, which was initially scheduled for June 23 to July 23, 2023, will not be played as planned due to the weather conditions in the West African country.

It is after deliberations we came into the decision, we have partners and even though we make decisions, it is out of respect that we take the advice we are getting that we cannot take a risk [to host the tournament] and so that is why we have made the necessary announcement today [Sunday June 03, 2022].

It is not good for African football to play a tournament that can be washed out, it is not good for Africa and the continent at large and so we have to postpone it. Reported by GOAL
