What is the African Cup of Nations format?

The AFCON fixtures for the 2022 tournament have been confirmed, with the 24 teams drawn into six separate groups. Below is a run-through of how teams can win the qualifiers in their group and potentially reach the final, which takes place on February 6, 2022.

Firstly, each team plays each other once in their respective group. The team with the most points from the group qualifiers goes through as the winners. The second-place team also enters the knockout stages if they perform well in their group standings.

However, there is also an opportunity for the best-ranked third-placed teams to reach the final 16. The best four performing teams who finish third in their group table will enter the knockout round for the AFCON fixtures.

Once the group stage is complete, the round of 16 takes place. These are straight knockout qualifications, with the loser being eliminated and the winner progressing to the quarter-finals. In the knockout stages, extra time is played if the AFCON fixtures are drawn after 90 minutes. If the score is tied after 120 minutes, then penalties take place to determine the winner.

The same format is used in the quarter-finals, semi-finals and finals. The winner of the tournament is the team that gets through their Africa Cup of Nations fixtures and wins the final.

Before the final happens, a third and fourth place play-off also takes place. This one-off match is played between the two sides that get through their AFCON fixtures, but who are eliminated at the semi-finals. The winner of this match is rewarded with a third-place finish in the tournament and the loser with fourth place.
