Morocco to host 2025 Africa Cup of Nations

The president of the Confederation Of African Football (Caf), Patrice Motsepe, has announced Morocco as the hosts for the 2025 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon).

It will be the second time the North African country has hosted the tournament, having first staged it in 1988.

The other 2025 contenders - Algeria, Zambia and a joint Benin/Nigeria bid - all agreed to withdraw, which left Morocco as the only candidate.

Hosting Afcon will allow Morocco a greater chance of bringing the World Cup to Africa in 2030 as part of a joint bid.

Afcon 2027 has been awarded to a joint bid from Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda.

It takes Africa’s showpiece men’s football event to East Africa for the first time since 1976, when Ethiopia hosted.

The next edition, Afcon 2023, will be held in Ivory Coast, and will kick off on 13th January 2024.
