According to information from RMC Sport, CAF and Morocco have agreed to organize CAN 2025 in the summer, i.e. in July/August 2025.

CAN 2023 reached its conclusion on February 11. A competition rich in spectacle which will have kept round leather lovers in suspense for four weeks. Host of the competition, Ivory Coast won the Grail after a journey strewn with pitfalls.

Virtually eliminated after a mediocre group stage, the Elephants were miraculously saved, notably by Morocco’s victory against Zambia. A second chance that the Ivorians skillfully seized, with victories against Senegal, Mali and Nigeria in the final.

New champions, Simon Adingra’s teammates will put their title on the line next year, in 2025, during the next edition in Morocco.
