Six countries rushing to host AFCON, why?


Six countries have made proposals to take Guinea’s spot as the host of the 2025 Africa Cup of Nations, according to Confederation of African Football (CAF) President Patrice Motsepe (AFCON).

The nations competing for the right to succeed Guinea as the tournament’s host in two years are Algeria, Morocco, South Africa, Zambia, and Benin-Nigeria.

Guinea was chosen to host the top national team competition in Africa in 2014. However, the West African country withdrew from hosting the biennial event last year due to the slow progress of preparations.

According to the AFP, CAF officials will visit each of the six nations on inspection missions this month, with the announcement of the new host country scheduled for February 10th.

The prosperous nation or nations, according to South African billionaire businessman Motsepe, would provide the greatest “transport, logistics, hotels, and stunning stadiums.”

“Each region will have the opportunity to host a CAN (Cup of Nations). We are unable to repeatedly assign the same region the CAN organization.

West Africa includes Benin, Nigeria, and the Ivory Coast, which will host the 2023 Cup of Nations.
