It should be in Kigali in the capital of Rwanda, on March 16 that the African Football Confederation (CAF) must announce the country which will have the honor of organizing the 35th African Cup of Nations (CAN 2025).
The date and place, Kigali, coinciding with the convening of a FIFA Congress. The host country of CAN 2025 will therefore be designated on the sidelines of the FIFA congress and the partial renewal of seats on the CAF Comex. Also, the president of the “CAF”, the South African, Patrice Motsepe, taking advantage of the FIFA event, will choose this date and this place and the very probable presence of the president of FIFA Giovanni Vincenzo Infantino, known as Gianni Infantino , to announce the country that has been selected for the organization of CAN 2025.
The initial date had been scheduled for February 10 and had to be postponed for several reasons, including the beginning of February, of the prestigious Club World Cup, which the Kingdom organized and which was won by Real Madrid who had defeated (5/3)Al Hilal (Saudi Arabia).
That said, before designating the “winner”, who will organize the “CAN 2025” on Morocco remains in competition with Zambia, the Nigeria-Benin duo and Algeria and will not know whether or not he will organize the event that all Moroccans are waiting for. March 16 is a date put forward by the magazine “Jeune Afrique”. For its part, CAF has not published any official press release on the date of the announcement of this grandiose event.
The organizer of the “CAN 2025”, will replace Guinea instead, withdrawn due to its non-compliance with the specifications of the “CAF”, and the lack of progress of the work on the various necessary installations. , including stadiums, hotels, infrastructure and others. The African magazine also understands that the African Football Authority will announce the same day the organizers of the 2025 and 2027 editions, in the event of course that the CAF Executive Board approves this proposal.
Morocco appears, in the general opinion, as the preferred and most likely alternative to host CAN 2025, due to its predispositions compared to the rest of its competitors in terms of stadiums and infrastructure. Another good point to the credit of the Kingdom, the Mundialito which was a great success from the point of view of its organization and the running of the competition.
