The 2023 Africa Cup of Nations will take place in June and July, says the acting Secretary General of Confederation of African Football (Caf), Abdel Bah.

The timing of the competition has been the subject of speculation after President Ahmad stated in June that it would take place in 2023 while saying he 'did not know what month'.

"As of today, the 2023 Nations Cup is planned for June/July because, to make it clear, in the regulations we have decided to play all Nations Cups in June/July," Bah told BBC Sport Africa.

In 2017, Caf decided to schedule all future Nations Cup for these months, enshrining the change in its tournament regulations.

The next Nations Cup will take place in January 2022 however owing to unfavourable weather conditions in Cameroon in June and July, when the host country suffers some of the wettest months of the year.

"The Nations Cup in Cameroon, after the request of the authorities, was postponed to January/February," added Bah.

"As of today, we haven't received the same request from Ivorian authorities."

Given that Ivory Coast suffers its wettest month of the year in June, such a request should not be ruled out.

However a move to earlier dates in 2023 could prove difficult as the 2022 World Cup will be played between 21 November and 18 December.

With a Nations Cup in early 2022 and mid-2023, and the 2022 World Cup it means some of Africa's leading footballers could play three major tournaments in the space of 18 months.
:shock: this is bad , these players are going to be burnt out , not to mention the log European seasons

The Afcon was always going to put strain on players especially if it was going to be played halfway through the European season.We can’t neglect our own leagues then expect players that are playing for their livelihood in Europe to come and play in what should be a major international tournament in empty stadiums and expect it to continue like that.
