The 2015 edition of the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) will be hosted by Equatorial Guinea from January 17 to February 8.
The tournament was initially scheduled to be hosted by Morocco, who previously hosted it in 1988, but Morocco refused to host the tournament at the scheduled dates because of the Ebola virus epidemic in West Africa. The host country was later changed to Equatorial Guinea.
A highlight of the fiesta will be the absence of Nigeria who were the defending champions. The country failed to qualify.
