Africa Cup of Nations 2019: Draw, fixtures, groups, and everything you need to know

0

The African competition will commence this summer in Egypt, with defending champions Cameroon looking to claim their second successive title

The 32nd edition of the Africa Cup of Nations is set to take place this June, with the qualification stages now complete.

All 24 teams have been confirmed for this summer's tournament, though title holders Cameroon had their hosting duties stripped after CAF stated that they were not satisfied with the country's preparations.

Following the news of Cameroon no longer hosting the competition, it was announced in January that CAF had chosen Egypt as the new host nation.

It is good news for fans of European teams as the Africa Cup of Nations will be held in the summer and not in the usual winter period for the first time in the tournament's history, and so players participating in the tournament will not have to disrupt their league season to represent their country.

Goal takes a look the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, qualified teams, how it works and brings you all the dates and fixture information.
What is the format of the Africa Cup of Nations?

At the final stage of the competition, 24 teams will be drawn into six groups of four teams each.

The teams in each group will then play in a single round-robin format, and after the group stage, the top two teams and the four best third teams will advance to the round of 16.

The winners will advance to the quarter-finals stage, and from then on, progress to the semi-finals. The semi-final losers will contest a third-place match, while semi-final winners will advance to the final.

Group stage games kick off on June 21 and the final will take place on July 19.
