The African Cup Of Nations

The African Cup Of Nations


A Brief History Of The African Cup Of Nations

In 1956 in Lisbon a meeting between seven delegates resulted in the formation of the Confederation of African Football and the organisation planned the first tournament for the following year in Khartoum.

However, as the start date drew near, there were a few hurdles to overcome, such as the exclusion of South Africa after the apartheid regime failed to approve a multi-racial team. So with South Africa out, the tournment came down to a play-off between just three teams Egypt, hosts Sudan and Ethiopia.

Egypt, Sudan and Ethiopia played the first two tournaments in odd years before it increased to four, six, eight, 12 and then 16 teams.

Since the early days, North Africa - and Ghana in particular - has maintained its reputation, while the other pioneers Ethiopia and Sudan have deteriorated.

And while there have been many highlights, few African Nations Cup tournaments have taken place without any problems.

One thing is certain, though - that Caf and the Nations Cup is still in existence is due to the passion for the game on the African continent.
