AFCON competition moved to June-July starting from 2019


In order to avoid causing disputes with European clubs who have to release their players in mid-season, January/February, the African Cup of all Nations (AFCON) has shifted the date of the tournament from the usual January date to June/July and this will start from 2019…


The changes were effected by the CAF executive committee in a meeting in the Moroccan capital Rabat today, Friday as the 2019 event to be held in Cameroon will now be contested by 24 teams instead of the usual 16 so that smaller African nations can participate.

According to new CAF President, Ahmad Ahmad , the competition will still hold once every two years.
