African Cup of Nations may be rescheduled to December 2025

Africa Cup of Nations may be rescheduled to December 2025

A potential rescheduling of the next African Cup of Nations in Morocco to December 2025 is being considered to avoid a clash with the new-look Club World Cup.

The Cup of Nations was scheduled to take place mid-year starting from the 2019 edition in Egypt. However, the last two editions did not take place as planned.

The next AFCON was originally planned for July and August 2025. However, due to FIFA’s new 32-team tournament, the Confederation of African Football (CAF) has had to reconsider these plans.

Recent reports have emerged that the event is set to span from late December 2025 to late January 2026, causing a shift in the football calendar to make room for FIFA’s expanded Club World Cup.

This scheduling change is expected to bring about significant adjustments and impacts on the international football scene.

The current plans are not yet confirmed but are under negotiation amid an escalating legal battle over the crammed football calendar.
