The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has officially released the schedule for the 2025 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers, setting the stage for an exciting series of matches. The qualifiers are set to run from September to November this year, carefully planned to accommodate the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers, which are scheduled for 2025.

This strategic timing ensures that teams can focus on both prestigious tournaments without overlapping commitments.

The Black Stars will kick off their AFCON 2025 qualifying campaign with a home match against Angola. The anticipation is high as fans eagerly await this opening clash, which promises to set the tone for Ghana’s journey in the qualifiers. The home advantage is expected to play a crucial role, with supporters hoping to see a strong start from their beloved Black Stars.

Following their opening match, Ghana will travel to Niger for their second Group F encounter, scheduled between September 2 and 10, 2024. This away game will test the team’s resilience and adaptability as they compete on foreign soil. The match against Niger is seen as a pivotal moment in the qualifiers, where securing points will be crucial for Ghana’s progression in the tournament.

October will bring a significant challenge for the Black Stars as they face Sudan in a double-header. This back-to-back confrontation will be a test of endurance and strategy for the team.
