African Nations Cup - Egypt 2019

Tournament will be held this coming summer. First time 24 teams participate. Countries like Burundi, Mauritania and Madagascar have qualified for the first time ever. The biggest absentees are Zambia (2012 Champions), Burkina Faso (2013 runners up) and Aubameyang's Gabon.

Draw will start later tonight after the ceremony. Will keep you posted.



Plan on going to a couple of games. Not Egypt games though, too crowded and I already went to the semis and final in 2006 when Egypt was involved and won the tournament.

Group D looks to be the most competitive?

I reckon Morocco and Cote d'Ivoire will be the top 2 and South Africa will finish 3rd

African football does not have the quality to sustain a 24 team tournament.

also only 6 venues (when 8 should be minimum) with 3 of those in one city (Cairo)

further proof why major tournaments should not be hosted in Africa/Mid-East

some Estonian company is taking care of the security arrangements.

So you know who to blame.
Firdaus, szövkap and TTM like this.

Big games are easy than the other games, unfortunately. Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes? And….it’s the football, that’s the football, something happened. Everything is something happened. - Fatih Terim

Cairo is the biggest city with the best hotels and infrastructure.

Cairo alone can host the whole tournament tbh. But other cities like Ismailia, Suez and Alexandria are getting matches for more exposure.

Portsaid should have been one of the venues but was replaced by one of the stadiums in Cairo as Portsaid stadium is not ready. Let's not forget that the tournament was initially supposed to be held in Cameroon, Egypt knew they were hosting it recently. January, I believe.

In any case Africans don't travel in numbers to watch their teams, it's not Europe

Interesting. I didn't know that. El Sisi has links with Estonia?
