Estimated read time: 1'

The 2025 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) will be held in Morocco in July and August, a Confederation of African Football (CAF) senior official told AFP on Monday.

The decision was made after months of discussions between CAF and the Moroccan Football Federation, with FIFA also playing a role in mediating the agreement.

The tournament was originally scheduled to be held in January and February 2025, but was postponed due to concerns about the weather conditions in Morocco during that time of year.

The 2025 Afcon will be the third consecutive edition of the tournament to be held in the summer, following the 2021 and 2023 tournaments which were held in Cameroon and Côte d'Ivoire respectively.

The 2025 tournament will be the first to feature 32 teams, up from the current 24-team format.
