The Algeria Ambassador to Cameroon Merzak Bedjaoui has collected the CAF flags to host the next edition of the Africa Nations Championship, CHAN. This comes after the conclusion of the last edition in Cameroon.
The competition reserved for locally-based players will be in its 7th edition in Algeria. It was originally scheduled to be played from 10 July to 1 August 2022.
However, CAF announced on 10 September 2020 that the tournament had been rescheduled to January 2023, following the postponement of the 2020 African Nations Championship to 2021 and the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations to 2022 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Algeria was selected to host this edition in 2018 and four venues in four cities have been selected to host the competition. Algiers (Stade du 5 Juillet), Oran (Ahmed Zabana Stadium), Constantine (Mohammed Hamlaoui Stadium) and Annaba (19 May Stadium) will host matches.
The qualifying rounds have yet to be made but it is expected that the qualifications for the tournament will begin in 2021 or 2022.
Algeria will be making just its second appearance at the Africa Nations Championship in 2023. The team’s previous participation at the competition was back in 2011 when they finished on the fourth position.
