CAF announced, in an official statement, that September 27th will be the date for determining the identity of the host of the African Cup of Nations in its 2025 and 2027 editions, on the sidelines of the Executive Committee meeting scheduled for the same day.
CAF has previously announced the final list of countries that have submitted their candidacy files to host the next two editions of AFCON. Which included the countries of Algeria, Senegal, Morocco, Zambia and South Africa, in addition to a joint bilateral file between the countries of Nigeria and Benin.
As for Algeria, it has submitted its candidacy for the next two editions of the African Cup of Nations, and it is noteworthy that the stadiums included in Algeria’s bid are: Nelson Mandela Stadium, Miloud Hadfi Stadium, May 19th 1956 Stadium, and Chahid Hamalaoui Stadium. Tizi Ouzou Stadium and July 5th Stadium.
The Algerian side is counting on several factors that may put it in the best position to embrace one of the two versions of the AFCON, such as the advanced infrastructure that the Algerian state has harnessed in the past few years.
On this basis, the recent tournament of CHAN held in Algeria is a rehearsal of Algeria’s ability to host the most prominent tournament on the African continent.
