The host country of the 2023 African Cup of Nations, Côte d'Ivoire, was at the center of attention during the meeting of the Executive Committee of the Confederation of African Football (CAF). The meeting was held by video conference on Monday 25 October. The aim? To avoid new organizational inconveniences as for the 2019 and 2021 editions of the competition.
It was agreed that a delegation of CAF emissaries will visit Côte d'Ivoire to assess the progress of the work. But also to draw up a complete inventory to determine if the host country will respect the deadlines.
CAF has yet to determine the exact date of this visit which will lead to an inspection of the stadiums of Bouake and Ebimpé. To accompany Côte d'Ivoire in the preparations for the AFCON 2023, a CAF office will be created in the country in February 2022. It will be in charge of supporting the Local Organizing Committee in the build up to the event.
