Afcon: 2021 Tournament To Be Played In January


The 2021 Africa Cup of Nations is set to start on January 9 after its dates were moved according to hosts Cameroon.

Initially, the tournament was scheduled to take place in June and July but was changed because of the bad weather in the West African country at that time of year.

The 2019 tournament in Egypt was the first one to be held in the summer but prior to that, the Cup of Nations had been held in January and February, clashing with the European domestic season.

The change back to January means that the tournament will not clash with the expanded Club World Cup, to be held in China in June 2021.
