African Cup of Nations – Afcon 2017 Starts Tomorrow

Sixty years has passed since the first Nations Cup, which took place in Sudan in 1957, consisted of only three teams and was won by Egypt. The 31st edition of the Africa Cup of Nations will kick off at 16:00 GMT on Saturday 14th January, 2017 when hosts Gabon take on debutants Guinea-Bissau. This year’s edition has 32 matches over 23 days, featuring 16 teams – who begin their quest in four groups of four – and will end on 5 February with the winning finalists lifting the Italian-made trophy and taking home $4m (£3.28m).
