Africa Cup Of Nations Expanded And Moved To June And July by jamalnation(m): 7:10am On Jul 21, 2017
The tournament will move from January-February to June-July and be expanded to 24 teams, according to plans confirmed by CAF
The next edition of the Africa Cup of Nations will be held in June and July 2019 and will change from 16 to 24 teams, the Confederation of African Football (CAF) has announced.
CAF said on Thursday after a meeting of its executive committee that the tournament will expand for the first time since 1996 and be switched from its usual slot in January and February.
The move will result in AFCON no longer clashing with the middle of the European season, meaning clubs will not have to cope without African players who are called up for the tournament.
AFCON will also be held exclusively in Africa and feature only nations from the continent following suggestions CAF could host the tournament elsewhere and invite non-African teams to compete.
Cameroon, the holders of the AFCON title after beating Egypt in February's final, will host the next finals in 2019, with 24 nations to be included in the competition for the first time.
An inspection will be conducted in early September to ensure Cameroon are on track to hold the tournament. Cameroon's sports minister Pierre Ismael Bidoung has this week denied reports the country is falling behind with preparations as hosts.
