What is the AFCON Qualifiers Format?

In 2022, the 12 lower-ranked African sides played in preliminary rounds. Six teams advanced from this stage, São Tomé and Príncipe, South Sudan, Lesotho, Eswatini, Gambia and Botswana.

Then, in April 2022, 48 teams were drawn in 12 groups made up of four teams. In the group stages, the four teams in each group play six AFCON qualifiers fixtures in total. The teams play once at home and once away.

Currently, five rounds have been played in the AFCON 2023 schedule. The final round of fixtures takes place in September 2023.

To progress to the finals, a team must top their group by winning the most AFCON qualifiers fixtures. However, the second-placed team in the standings also goes through to the finals.

Lastly, once the group stages have concluded, 24 teams head to the AFCON finals. In 2024, the finals will take place in Ivory Coast, who does not have to participate in the qualifiers, since they have qualified as the host country.
