AFCON 2022 fixtures: dates, kick off times, groups and results for Africa Cup of Nations

The delayed Africa Cup of Nations kicked off on January 9 as five-times tournament winners Cameroon began their bid to become the first hosts to go all the way since Egypt in 2006. 

Defending champions Algeria were considered among the favourites to win the entire thing ahead of the tournament but crashed out without a win at the bottom of Group E.

Ready to pinch their Afcon crown is a tightly-bunched field of contenders. Senegal, Cameroon, Nigeria and Morocco are all priced at 6/1 or shorter and will be expected to make deep runs at the tournament.

The Africa Cup of Nations will again feature 24 teams after it was expanded from 16 nations in 2019. There will be 52 matches played across 28 days, with the winners crowned at The Paul Biya Stadium on February 6.

Both The Comoros and Gambia reached the Afcon finals for the first time after historic qualification campaigns saw them through to the tournament proper. Although The Comoros fell at the round of 16 after a spirited showing against hosts Cameroon, Gambia continued their remarkable campaign with victory over Guinea to book a place in the quarters.
