CAF reopens bid for 2025 AFCON hosting rights
The Confederation of Africa Football (CAF) is calling for bids for the 2025 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament.
In an official statement, the continent’s football governing body says it has reopened bids for the next two editions of the tournament.
The decision was taken on Saturday, October 1, in Algeria on the back of the decision to strip Guinea of the hosting rights.
“The Confédération Africaine de Football (“CAF”) Executive Committee (“EXCO”) met on Saturday 1 October 2022 in Algiers, Algeria and announced the re-opening of bids for the TotalEnergies Africa Cup of Nations 2025,” an official club statement from CAF has said.
Meanwhile, CAF has extended best wishes to all five teams that have qualified for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
“CAF wishes Senegal, Tunisia, Ghana, Morocco and Cameroon all of the best in the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022,” the CAF statement concludes.
