CAF Denies Postponement Of 2025 Africa Cup Of Nations




The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has refuted claims that the 2025 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament has been postponed by six months.

In an official statement on their X account, CAF labeled the reports as “false.”

CAF emphasized that any announcements about a possible postponement of the 2025 AFCON are unfounded.

The organization clarified that the CAF Executive Committee will convene to deliberate and decide on the official dates for the 2025 tournament.

The erroneous reports had suggested that the tournament, set to be hosted by Morocco, was being rescheduled to 2026.

Scheduling challenges

The confusion stems from a scheduling tangle that sees players playing all season in their various professional clubs, then playing in the Club World Cup from June 15 to July 13, 2025, and then returning to playing at the CAF tournament.

“Is this good for the interests of the players?” CAF Secretary General Veron Mosengo-Omba had asked in a recent interview with the BBC.

CAF, however, says it will ‘’issue an official statement on the subject’’ after deliberations.

The association is also under pressure to fix dates for this year’s women’s Africa Cup of Nations finals, also in Morocco.
