2019 African Cup of Nations
The African Cup of Nations is the major international tournament pitting the national teams of countries from across the continent against each other, much like the European Championships or the Copa America. It takes place every two years and the 2019 edition will be the 32nd tournament to be competed for.
Egypt were the winners of the first tournament back in 1957 and they remain the most successful team in the history of the competition to this day having lifted the trophy no less than seven times in their history. The Pharaohs lost out in the final of the 2017 competition though at the hands of Cameroon who will come into this year’s tournaments as holders and one of the favourites once again.
When is the African Cup of Nations?
The African Cup of Nations has been a hindrance to Premier League clubs in the past due to the scheduling of the competition usually clashing with major European leagues. The 2019 tournament, instead of taking place in January and February, will instead be competed for in June and July.
Holders Cameroon were originally scheduled to be the hosts of this year’s tournament, but due to infrastructural delays they were stripped of hosting to the competition and it was instead handed to Egypt. The draw is yet to be concluded, but the hosts will take part in the opening game at the Cairo International Stadium on June 21st.
