AFCON 2023 draw holds in September



The Africa Cup of Nations 2023 holding in 2024 has entered the fast lane as the date for the final draw has been fixed.

CAF General Secretary, Veron Mosengo-Omba confirmed that the Final Draw  will be held in September 2023. But the date and venue are yet to be confirmed.

There are just two match days for the conclusion of the qualifying series although almost a quarter of the field has been filled.

The already qualified teams are Cote d’Ivoire as hosts, Morocco, Algeria, Senegal, Burkina Faso, Tunisia and  South Africa.

Nigeria’s Super Eagles need at least a point from obtainable six in the remaining two matches to qualify.


With the rapidly growing global interest of CAF competitions recorded in the last few months, CAF is projecting record global TV audiences and stadium attendances for next year’s edition of its flagship competition, which also currently holds the record of being Africa’s biggest event.

As evidently seen in recently concluded CAF competitions, CAF has taken giant steps in enhancing the viewing and stadium attendance experience of its competitions with the introduction of cutting-edge broadcast technology as well as digital engagement, resulting in a world-class product that is consumed in real time globally.
