The road to Cote d’Ivoire TotalEnergies Africa Cup of Nations will gain momentum in June 2022 when the Group Stages commence.
The draw for the group stages will be conducted on Tuesday, 19 April 2022 but the qualifiers will have more than 10 countries playing their home games away from home due to a stadium ban by CAF.
More than 20 Stadiums were banned last year by CAF from hosting international matches for not meeting the minimum requirements set by the African football governing body.
While affected countries like Eswatini, Sierra Leone, and Liberia have commenced renovation works on their stadium’s others are yet to begin preparation to put the facilities in good condition with less than two months to the qualifiers of 2023 Africa cup nations qualifiers.
Below are countries set to play their home matches of AFCON 2023 abroad.
- Sierra Leone
- Burkina Faso
- Central Africa Republic
- South Sudan
Other countries like Kenya, Ethiopia, Uganda, and Rwanda whose stadiums were banned by CAF might be given one or two matches’ approval before looking for a neutral ground.
