Africa Cup of Nations 2019 schedule

Graphic News

June 21-July 19, 2019 -- The Africa Cup of Nations, the biennial international men’s football championship of Africa, takes place in Egypt. The 32nd edition of the tournament, organised by the Confederation of African Football (CAF), marks an expansion of the format, with 24 teams competing to be crowned continental Champions. Original hosts Cameroon were stripped of the tournament last year due to delays in stadia construction and security fears.

Host nation Egypt open the tournament against Zimbabwe in Cairo on June 21. Reigning champions Cameroon begin their campaign in Ismailia against Guinea-Bissau, while top ranked African nations Senegal and Tunisia kick-off their tournaments against Tanzania and Angola respectively.

Egypt are aiming to lift the Nations trophy for a record-extending eighth time, and deliver their first title since 2010. A total of 14 nations have triumphed since the first Africa Cup of Nations in 1957, including 2017 winners Cameroon (5-time champions) and Ghana (4-time champions), who are looking to win their first title since 1982.

A total of 52 matches will be played at six venues over four weeks, with the final taking place at the Cairo International Stadium on July 19.


NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.


Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @ graphicnews.com
