The 2025 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) will take place from December 21, 2025, to January 18, 2026 in Morocco as the host nation.

This decision was made by the Confederation of African Football (CAF) during a virtual executive meeting on Friday.

The draw for the 2025 AFCON will be held next month in Johannesburg, South Africa, with qualifying matches running from September to October 2024.

Nigeria finished second at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations in Côte d’Ivoire, losing 2-1 to the hosts in the final.

Despite the loss, Nigeria’s captain, William Troost-Ekong, was named the Most Valuable Player of the Tournament. Troost-Ekong, a centre-back with Greece champions PAOK, scored three crucial goals, helping Nigeria reach the AFCON final for the first time in 11 years.

Nigeria’s immediate goal will be to qualify for the 2025 AFCON, after which the Super Eagles  will turn their attention towards winning the tournament in Morocco.
