The logo for the 2023 CAF Africa Cup of Nations Championship (AFCON) scheduled to be staged in Cote D’Ivoire, has been officially unveiled.
Africa’s football governing CAF unveiled the logo via a video presentation that had “a new identity” and “a new experience” phrases precede the official logo.
Cote D’Ivoire’s national flag colours (orange, green and white) are heavily represented in the logo design against a green backdrop.
The tournament runs from January 13 to February 11 next year with 24 African nations due to compete in six venues across five cities in the West African nation.
The competition was originally planned to be staged this year but the lingering effects of the COVID 19 pandemic forced organizers to push the start date to next year’s.
The penultimate round of qualifiers is to be played later this month with four time AFCON champions Ghana taking on Madagascar on June 18.
Senegal is the defending champion after winning its first ever AFCON title via penalty shoot out win over Egypt at the 2021 edition held in Cameroon.
