Morocco will host the Africa Cup of Nations in the summer of 2025, the Moroccan Royal Federation of Football (FRMF) has announced.
After the 2019 event in Egypt, the competition will take place in the summer for the second time ever.
The move is meant to lessen schedule issues with European club teams and leagues, whose top players leave to represent their own nations.
Since that the 2025 FIFA Club World Cup will also take place in the summer in the USA, it remains to be seen how FIFA will respond to the news.
Furthermore, following the Atlas Lions’ early exit from the 2023 AFCON, the Moroccan Royal Federation of Football reaffirmed its confidence in head coach Walid Regragui.
