The competition will run from January 9 to February 6. This is what the winner of the Africa Cup of Nations will touch.
Who will lift the precious trophy at the Olembé Football Stadium in Yaoundé and succeed the Algerian team? The nation that will have this honor will leave Cameroon with glory, and also a nice check.
Indeed, the winner will be awarded $ 5 million (or 4.4 million euros). This is more than in 2019 when the Fennecs had touched 3.96 million euros.
