BREAKING: Nigeria l9ses out as Morocco wins right to host AFCON 2025

The 2025 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) will be hosted by the East African Nation, Morocco.

This was announced by the Executive Committee board of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) on Wednesday, September 27, in Cairo, Egypt.

The committee also announced that the 2027 AFCON edition will be jointly hosted by Kenya, Uganda, and Tanzania.

Morocco last hosted the AFCON in 1988 and was chosen in 2015 but asked for the tournament to be postponed because of the Ebola virus, although CAF later decided to strip the North African nation of the hosting rights.


CAF President Patrice Motsepe celebrated the news saying that the “future of African football has never been brighter.”

He also suggested that an African nation will win the World Cup in the near future.

  1. I support Morocco to host it because Nigeria is not ready to spend unnecessary money due to the hardship and economic melt down.
    Even the workers are suffering and smiling, what do we think I’d them ? Should they commit suicide? No is the correct answer , I am sorry to say that. Thanks
