Morocco, Algeria set to host Cup of Nations tournaments

Morocco and Algeria have emerged favorites to host the Africa Cup of Nations championships in 2025 and 2027, respectively, with an announcement expected in Cairo on Wednesday.

Both countries, along with Zambia and a joint Nigeria-Benin bid, are vying to host the biggest sporting event in Africa in 2025.

Algeria, Botswana, Egypt, Senegal, and a joint challenge from Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda all entered the 2027 competition.

North African neighbours Algeria and Morocco have an adversarial political relationship, which entered the football arena this year.

Members of the executive committee are expected to cast their votes after reviewing independent assessments of each 2025 and 2027 contender, but politics and the promise of regional rotation have complicated matters.
