CAF Confirm Changes To AFCON

CAF have confirmed that the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations will be held in June and July, and that the number of participants has been increased.

AFCON usually takes place during the months of January and February, which often sees clubs releasing their players during the season.

The other change to the competition will see 24 nations taking part, rather than the usual 16.

CAF were reportedly considering whether to allow countries from outside Africa to compete, but it was decided that only African nations will be eligible.

The competition will, however, continue to take place every two years. The 2019 AFCON in Cameroon will be the first tournament where the abovementioned changes will be implemented.
 
The timeline of CAF club competitions, namely the CAF Champions League and CAF Confederations Cup, will also be changed, and in future run from August to May.
 
These were the most important resolutions taken during a CAF executive meeting in Rabat, Morocco, on Thursday.
