CAF President welcomes Morocco’s bid to host AFCON 2025

The president of the Confederation of African Football (CAF), Patrice Motsepe, said he was “thrilled” to receive applications from countries interested in hosting the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) 2025, saying the objective is “to organize the best competition in Africa”.

Patrice Motsepe made the statement upon arrival Saturday in Rabat to attend the final of the Women’s African Champions League between Morocco’s AS FAR and South African Mamelodi Sundowns taking place this Sunday.

CAF chief welcomed Morocco’s application to host AFCON 2025, pointing out that “Morocco has often hosted major competitions and has sometimes been the only country to host a new competition. I am very grateful to Morocco for that.”

The head of African soccer’s highest body voiced gratitude to Morocco for the support it provides to many African countries and its contribution to the development of soccer on the continent.

Motsepe also highlighted the level reached by women’s soccer in Africa, which, according to him, is continuously progressing, and recalled that the last time he was in Morocco, a new attendance record was registered for a women’s match, on the occasion of the Morocco-Nigeria match in the framework of the 2022 Women’s CAN.
