The 2023 Africa Cup of Nations is scheduled to be the 34th edition of the Africa Cup of Nations, the football championship of Africa (CAF). The tournament is scheduled to be hosted by Guinea.[1] The competition is likely to be held in January 2023.


After the final vote at the CAF Executive Committee meeting, on 20 September 2014, the CAF announced the hosts for the 2019, 2021 and 2023 AFCON tournaments: 2019 to Cameroon, 2021 to Ivory Coast, and 2023 to Guinea.[2]

The announcement of the 2023 hosts was unscheduled. Guinea was one of the bidders for the 2019 and 2021 tournaments, whose host countries were scheduled to be announced on that day. A CAF spokesperson told the BBC that, on the basis of Guinea's presentation "and commitment", the committee "decided to exercise its power to make an immediate decision."[2]
