CAN 2025: CAF fears that Guinea cannot host the tournament

A delegation from the Confederation of African Football (CAF), led by Vice-President Ahmed Ould Yahya, arrived in Guinea on Friday to take stock of the situation and observe the work on the ground for the preparations for the organization of CAN 2025.

Guinea, host of CAN 2025, has not yet started to put in place the necessary constructions, stadiums and infrastructure. A situation that casts great doubt on the country’s ability to organize the competition.

Contacted by us on the concern, a source from the umbrella of African football suggested to us that CAF fears that Guinea will not be able to host the event.

About the official visit of the Confederation of African Football delegation to Guinea, the source gave us more details. The delegation must begin its tours inside Guinea. The visit will continue until June 15. CAF Secretary General Veron Mosengo-Omba, who has completed his visit to Côte d’Ivoire to learn about the progress of the 2023 edition, will join the mission in Guinea.

The delegation will then present a full report on Guinea’s plan and preparations to host CAN 2025. This report will be submitted to the CAF Executive Committee during its next meeting, scheduled for the end of June.

As a reminder, Guinea had inherited the organization of the CAN 2023, on September 20, 2014. The CAN 2023 will finally be postponed by two years, i.e. in 2025, following the stories linked to a shift in the CANs, under the presidency of Ahmad Ahmad.
