  • 0

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has re-opened proposals for the 2025 Africa Cup of Nations.

This information came after CAF officially stripped Guinea of the rights to host AFCON 2025.

CAF disclosed this via its website.

It states, “The Confédération Africaine de Football (“CAF”) Executive Committee (“EXCO”) met in Algiers, Algeria and announced the re-opening of bids for the TotalEnergies Africa Cup of Nations 2025.

“CAF wishes Senegal, Tunisia, Ghana, Morocco, and Cameroon all of the best in the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022.”

Cote d’ Voire will host the next edition of the AFCON in 2023.

The rights withdrawal followed a meeting on Friday in Conakry between Guinea’s interim president, Col. Mamady Doumbouya, and CAF President Patrice Motsepe.

Immediate past president of Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Amaju Pinnick once stated that the country would be willing to co-host AFCON 2025 with the next-door neighbour, Benin Republic.

Morocco and Algeria are among the countries that intended to present candidacy for the organization of the African Cup of Nations.
