Amid swirling rumors regarding the scheduling of the 2025 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON), the Moroccan Football Federation has moved to dispel speculation and provide clarity on the tournament’s timeline.

Fouzi Lekjaa, President of the Moroccan Football Federation, addressed concerns regarding the timing of AFCON 2025 in an interview with Marca, emphasizing Morocco’s commitment to hosting the prestigious event.

While the exact dates of the tournament remain undecided, Lekjaa affirmed Morocco’s readiness to accommodate the competition whenever it takes place.

Responding to conjecture suggesting a potential timeframe of July 20 to August 16-17, 2025, Véron Mosengo-Omba, Secretary General of the Confederation of African Football (CAF), clarified in February that CAF had not yet finalized the dates for AFCON 2025.

Lekjaa underscored Morocco’s determination to ensure the success of AFCON2025, affirming that the tournament would not coincide with the FIFA Club World Cup.

With the Club World Cup scheduled from June 15 to July 13, Lekjaa hinted at the possibility of hosting AFCON 2025 either after the conclusion of the Club World Cup or at an alternative time to enable the participation of African football stars.

The president’s remarks provide reassurance to football enthusiasts and stakeholders, emphasizing Morocco’s commitment to fostering a vibrant celebration of African football.

By ensuring that AFCON 2025 does not overlap with the Club World Cup, Morocco aims to maximize the participation of top-tier players and elevate the stature of the tournament on the global stage.

While the specifics of the tournament dates are yet to be determined, Lekjaa’s statement affirms Morocco’s proactive approach to hosting AFCON 2025 in a manner that enhances the experience for players, fans, and stakeholders alike.

As preparations continue, football enthusiasts eagerly await further updates on the scheduling of this highly anticipated event.
