The Confederations of Africa Football has adjourned the dates for the CHAN 2022 draw.
The TotalEnergies CHAN Algeria 2023 qualification draw was initially scheduled for Friday, 29 April 2022.
The association announced on their official website late this afternoon.
CAF will communicate new dates in due course.
The TotalEnergies CHAN 2023 qualifiers is scheduled to kick off in July 2022.
Morocco are defending champions after defeating Mali in the final of the 2021 edition staged in Cameroon.
Forty-seven African countries will be aiming to qualify for the seventh edition of the tournament in an attempt to dethrone the Atlas Lions as continental kings.
With Algeria 2023 scheduled to be held from 8 January – 31 January 2023, the teams expected to participate will be known later this year, and will have enough time to get ready for their opponents and to fine-tune their preparations.
Chan 2023 was originally scheduled to be played from 10 July to 1 August 2022. Nonetheless, Caf rescheduled it to January 2023, due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
A total of 47 teams qualified to participate in the qualifiers.
The teams will then be drawn into 12 groups of four teams (Group A to L) with the top two teams from each group qualifying for the tournament to be played in the North African country.
Hosts Morocco will also participate in the draw even though they have already secured their place in the tournament which means only one other team from their group will qualify for the competition.
