CAF, FIFA Reach Agreement For AFCON 2025 To Hold In Summer

Confederation of African Football (CAF) and Federation of International Football Association (FIFA) have reached an agreement in principle for the AFCON 2025 to hold in the summer.

According to former France Football reporter, Hanif Ben Berkane, there is the possibility of the tournament to hold between mid-July and mid-August 2025.

The timing of the AFCON has always been an issue mostly with European clubs who have to be without key African players.

The tournament is always staged between January and February and has led to criticisms by owners of top European club owners and coaches.

Their argument is that the tournament is held in the thick of the European season.

The last time the AFCON was held in the summer was the 2019 edition in Egypt.

Following the agreement reached by CAF and FIFA, this would surely be a welcome
