Confederation of Africa Football – CAF has confirmed the postponement of 2023 African Cup of Nations to following year, January/February 2024.
The 34th edition of Africa of Nation will be held in Ivory Coast.
“The TotalEnergies Africa Cup of Nations AFCON Cote d’Ivoire will now be held in January-February of 2024,” said Motsepe.
“We don’t want to run the risk of having a competition that’s going to be washed out. It’s not good for African football, for our image, and we have to work on that basis,” he added.
Initially the tournament was to be hosted in June/July 2024.
Senegal are the defending Champions having won the last edition, beating Egypt in the final earlier this year.
