CAN 2022 calendar: full list of dates, times, TV channels to watch and broadcast the matches

Organizers may have been forced to postpone the competition for a year, but the Africa Cup of Nations is finally taking place in Cameroon, with 24 nations vying for the crown of Africa’s best team, a title currently held by a dominant Algerian team. The full tournament schedule follows below.

The Algerians could set a record in the CAN tournament this year if they can go undefeated in four more matches. They enter the tournament on a series of 34 unbeaten matches approaching the 37-game unbeaten bar set by Italy in 2021. Algeria, which added the FIFA Arab Cup to its record in December, is set to face the biggest challenge in its defense of Senegal’s title , the team she beat in the final of the last edition. The Senegalese are looking for their first CAN championship.

Egypt have won the tournament more times than any other nation (seven), but they haven’t hoisted the trophy since 2010. Pharaohs fans are hopeful that Liverpool superstar striker Mohamed Salah can lead the team far. Côte d’Ivoire have a strong and experienced squad, while host Cameroon will love their chances of creating a surprise and replicating their 2017 race.

Cameroon is hosting the tournament for the first time since 1972, and all eyes will be on the impact the recent wave of COVID-19 will have on the event. The fast-spreading omicron variant has already wreaked havoc in league competitions around the world, and positive tests could lead to unpredictable lineups. But there will be no postponement and the coaches will have expanded the rosters to 28 players and five substitutes (and a sixth in overtime) to help manage the outbreaks.

The matches will be played in front of crowds of reduced capacity with fans present must present proof of vaccination. It remains to be seen how many fans actually show up since, according to Reuters, 2% of the Cameroonian population is vaccinated.

CAN 2022: Tournament format

Similar to other continental championships and World Cup tournaments, the Africa Cup of Nations begins with a group stage, followed by knockout rounds until the final. And for the first time in the history of the competition, all 52 matches will include a video review and the use of a Video Assistant Referee (VAR).

Group stage: The 24 nations are divided into six groups of four nations each. At the end of the round robin group match – with three points awarded for a win, one for a draw and none for a loss – the top two teams in each group based on points (and tiebreakers , if necessary) qualify for knockouts. The remaining places in the round of 16 will be occupied by the best four thirds.

Knockout phase: A predetermined knockout group will be played until the final. If a knockout match ends in a tie after 90 minutes, the teams will play 30 minutes of extra time. If the draw persists, a penalty shootout will determine which team to pass. The third-place game is the only one that would skip extra time and go straight to penalties in the event of a tie.
