Super Eagles will know their opponents in the 2024 African Cup of Nations billed to hold in Cote d’Ivoire in September, just as the Confederation of African Football (CAF) has fixed the kickoff of the competition on January 13, 2024 at the Alassane Ouattara Stadium, Ebimpe, Abidjan.
The four-week tournament, pitting Africa’s best 24 nations, will officially conclude on February 11.
Nigeria will cement its ticket to the competition with a draw in its last two remaining games against Sierra Leone and Sao Tome and Principe.
The 2024 competition will be the 34th edition of the tournament, which Cote d’Ivoire is hosting for the second time, having first hosted the event in 1984.
Already, hosts, Cote d’Ivoire and Algeria, Morocco, South Africa, Tunisia, Burkina Faso and African champions, Senegal, have qualified for the competition.
Yesterday, CAF General Secretary, Veron Mosengo-Omba, confirmed that the final draw of the bi-annual event would be held in September this year, adding that date and venue will be confirmed in due course.
With the rapidly growing global interest of CAF competitions recorded in the last few months, the African body is projecting record global television audiences and stadium attendances for next year’s edition of its flagship competition, which also currently holds the record of being Africa’s biggest event.
As evidently seen in recently concluded CAF competitions, the African body has taken giant steps in enhancing the viewing and stadium attendance experience of its competitions with the introduction of cutting-edge broadcast technology as well as digital engagement, resulting in a world-class product that is consumed in real-time globally.
