Morocco strengthen bid for 2025 AFCON by housing six countries for the qualifiers

Morocco are gradually becoming the home of African football after opening their doors to six African countries for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers.

Sierra Leone, São Tomé, Guinea, Ethiopia, Gambia and Mali are all expected to play in Morocco this international window.

The North African country appears to have become the go-to destination due to its ultra modern football infrastructure.

With various stadiums Africa ruled out due to its poor quality coupled with political unrest, instability as well as poor health conditions in some of the countries, Morocco has become the ultimate destination for matches.

Morocco have an excellent track record of hosting international events such as this he 2017 Trophée des Champions which Paris Saint-Germain beat Monaco 2–1.

The country continues to demonstrate that they are capable of hosting the 2025 AFCON and eventually the 2030 World Cup alongside Spain and Portugal.
