Date of the draw for the 2025 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers, the system and the classification



The South African city of Johannesburg will host the draw for the 2025 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers, with 48 teams participating, all of whom dream of being in the competition scheduled to be held in Morocco.

The Ivory Coast team is the title holder of the last edition after defeating Nigeria in the final match in a dramatic manner after the “Elephants” were on the verge of bidding farewell to the competition in the first round.

The Egyptian national team maintains its position as the most crowned African Cup of Nations champion in history with 7 titles, followed by the Cameroonian national team with 5 titles.

Morocco in particular seeks to exploit the home field advantage and achieve the title for the second time in its history after long years of being away from the shield extending back to the seventies of the last century. In general, the competition in the tournament will be exceptional in light of the distinctive atmosphere in Morocco and the international stadiums that will later host the 2030 World Cup.
