The tournament is being hosted by Egypt. The competition is currently held from 21 June to 19 July 2019, as per the decision of the CAF Executive Committee on 20 July 2017 to move the Africa Cup of Nations from January/February to June/July for the first time.[1] It is also the first Africa Cup of Nations expanded from 16 to 24 teams.[2][3]

The tournament was initially scheduled to be hosted by Cameroon.[4] Cameroon would have hosted the competition for the first time since 1972. They were also the title holders after winning the previous edition. On 30 November 2018, Cameroon was stripped of hosting the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations[5] due to delays in the delivery of infrastructure, the Boko Haram insurgency and the Anglophone Crisis.[6] On 8 January 2019, Egypt was chosen by the CAF Executive Committee as the host nation of the competition.[7] The tournament was also moved from the original dates of 15 June – 13 July to 21 June – 19 July due to Ramadan.[8]

Cameroon were the defending champions, but were eliminated in the round of 16 by Nigeria. The hosts Egypt were eliminated at the same stage after losing to South Africa.

Due to Morocco withdrawing from being hosts of the 2015 edition, CAF banned the national team of Morocco from entering the 2017 and 2019 Africa Cups of Nations.[12] However, the ban was overturned by the Court of Arbitration for Sport, meaning Morocco, having qualified for this edition of the African Cup of Nations, could participate in the tournament.[13]

Due to the withdrawal of Chad during 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualification, they were banned from entering the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.[14]

VenuesEdit

With the Africa Cup of Nations expanded from 16 to 24 teams, at least six venues were expected to be used.

After being awarded the bid, initially Egypt chose eight stadiums to host the tournament. The eight stadiums were Cairo International Stadium and Al Salam Stadium in Cairo, Alexandria Stadium and Haras El Hodoud Stadium in Alexandria, Egyptian Army Stadium and Suez Stadium in Suez, Ismailia Stadium in Ismailia and Al Masry Club Stadium in Port Said. Later, Al Salam Stadium was replaced with 30 June Stadium, which is another stadium located in Cairo. It was expected that the famous Borg El Arab Stadium in Alexandria and Osman Ahmed Osman Stadium in Cairo would be used in the tournament, but they weren't selected.

On 17 February 2019, it was confirmed that only six stadiums will be used. The six venues are Cairo International Stadium and 30 June Stadium in Cairo, Alexandria Stadium in Alexandria, Suez Stadium in Suez, Ismailia Stadium in Ismailia and Al Masry Club Stadium in Port Said.[15]

However, on 13 March 2019, Al Masry Club Stadium in Port Said was replaced by Al Salam Stadium in Cairo after discovering a problem with one of the stadium's main stands.[16]

FormatEdit

Only the hosts received an automatic qualification spot, with the other 23 teams qualifying through a qualification tournament. At the finals, the 24 teams were drawn into six groups of four teams each. The teams in each group played a single round robin. After the group stage, the top two teams and the four best third-placed teams advanced to the round of 16. The winners will advance to the quarter-finals. The winners of the quarter-finals will advance to the semi-finals. The losers of the semi-finals will play in a third place play-off, while winners of the semi-finals will play in the final.[20]

The draw procedure was approved by the CAF Executive Committee on 11 April 2019. For the draw, the teams were allocated to four pots based on the FIFA World Rankings of April 2019 (shown in brackets).
