CAF Announces New Dates for Women's Africa Cup of Nations (WAFCON) 2024

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has officially rescheduled the Women's Africa Cup of Nations (WAFCON) 2024 to be held in Morocco. Originally slated for 2024, the tournament has been postponed to accommodate the congested women's football calendar, particularly in light of the 2024 Paris Olympics.

New Tournament Dates Confirmed

The highly anticipated WAFCON 2024 will now commence on Saturday, July 5, 2025, and culminate with the final match scheduled for Saturday, July 26, 2025. This decision by CAF aims to ensure optimal participation and preparation for all qualifying teams amidst the global sporting events landscape.

Reasons Behind the Postponement

CAF's decision to push back the tournament was driven by the need to avoid overlapping with the 2024 Paris Olympics, a major international event that draws significant attention from the global sporting community. By rescheduling to July 2025, CAF aims to provide a dedicated platform for African women's football, allowing teams and players ample time to prepare and showcase their talent on the continental stage.

Morocco: Host Nation for WAFCON 2024

Morocco, known for its vibrant football culture and enthusiastic fan base, will serve as the host nation for WAFCON 2024. The tournament promises to not only highlight the prowess of African women's football but also foster regional unity and celebrate the growing popularity of the sport across the continent.

Looking Ahead

With the new dates set in stone, national teams across Africa will intensify their preparations to compete in one of the continent's most prestigious football tournaments. Fans, stakeholders, and participants alike eagerly anticipate the kickoff in July 2025, as Morocco prepares to welcome teams and supporters from across Africa for an unforgettable sporting spectacle.

The announcement of the rescheduled WAFCON 2024 underscores CAF's commitment to promoting and developing women's football in Africa, ensuring that the tournament maintains its stature as a cornerstone event in the African football calendar.

As the countdown begins to July 2025, all eyes will be on Morocco, where the best of African women's football will converge to vie for continental glory in the Women's Africa Cup of Nations.
