AFCON Qualifiers Postponed Till 2023 In Preparation For Qatar 2022

Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) 2024 qualifiers have been pushed back to March next year to help the continent's teams prepare for the World Cup in Qatar.

The decision to delay the qualifiers was eased when the finals, originally scheduled to be held in June and July next year in Ivory Coast, were postponed to January-February 2024 in a bid to avoid the rainy season.

"The postponement of the Cup of Nations offered an opportunity to reschedule the remaining qualifying matches," a document addressed to the members of the executive committee of the CAF.

"It also makes it possible to open the dates in September to international friendly matches for preparation for the World Cup."

Senegal, who won the 2022 Cup of Nations in February, Cameroon, Ghana, Morocco and Tunisia have qualified for the World Cup to be staged in Qatar from 21 November to 18 December.

The third and fourth rounds of qualifying for the 2024 Cup of Nations will take place in March 2023, match days five and six will be held in June with the sixth day set for September.

The first two rounds were completed in June this year.
