The Confederation of African football, CAF, have revealed new dates for the 34th edition of the competition.
Initially scheduled for Ivory Coast next year in June/July, but as a result of the expected bad weather conditions, Caf has decided to move the continental showpiece to January 2024.
CAF President Dr Patrice Motsepe stated on Sunday that the 34th edition, which was initially scheduled for June 23 to July 23, 2023, will not be played as planned due to the weather conditions in the West African country.
“The 2023 Afcon will now be played between January and February 2024,” Mostepe told the media during a press conference in Morocco.
“This is one of the issues we discussed during our congress meeting here in Morocco as the official dates will be communicated later.
