  • HOST, DATES AND FORMAT

Originally scheduled to be played in Cameroon in the summer of 2021, the tournament has twice seen its dates altered. CAF, the governing body of African football, moved it forward to January/February 2021 due to the more favourable conditions on the continent at that time of year. However, the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in a 12-month postponement.Information Guide Nigeria
