The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has revealed the signing of the contract to host Cote d’Ivoire for the 34th edition of the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations.
Last July, the Executive Office of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) announced the postponement of the next edition of the African Nations due to rain.
The next edition of the African Nations was scheduled to be held in Cote d’Ivoire, in June 2023, but the heavy rains this year increased the Continental Union’s fears of a repeat of the situation next year, so it was ruled out in the summer.
It was decided to hold the next African Nations edition in Côte d’Ivoire in January 2024 instead of June 2023.
CAF said in a statement on its official website today, Sunday, that its president, Dr. Patrice Motsepe, signed with the government of Cote d’Ivoire and the organizing committee to host Abidjan for the upcoming African Nations Championship.
The CAF statement added: “The signing ceremony was attended by the Prime Minister of Cote d’Ivoire Patrick Ache, Minister of Sports of Cote d’Ivoire Claude Pauline Danho, Ivorian Football Federation President Yassine Idriss Diallo, CAF Vice President, some heads of member African federations and CAF Secretary General Veron Mosengo Oumba.” .
The statement explained: “The hosting agreement or contract is a document in which CAF specifies the hosting federation for the thirty-fourth edition of the African Cup of Nations and the confirmation agreement between CAF and the Local Organizing Committee.”
