The latest edition of the Total Africa Cup of Nations is coming to more fans across the globe than ever before, bringing them closer to the action and excitement of the tournament. 

Paris, 22 July 2019 – The 2019 edition of the Total Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON), was available to fans in Brazil, Russia, and new territories in Europe (Germany, Austria, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Hungary, Norway, Czech Republic, Slovakia and Sweden) enabling more than half the world’s population across more than 110 countries to follow the entire competition on television (broadcast media list below).

This outstanding coverage of the games was thanks to the collaboration between the Confédération Africaine de Football (CAF) and its marketing agency Lagardère Sports. The 2019 edition of the Total AFCON also received the proactive and efficient support from the host country Egypt.  This edition now features 52 matches bringing together 24 teams across 6 different locations which is a first for the competition.

Fans were able to enjoy more games than ever and thanks to the high quality of production, broadcast of the opening and final matches in 4K and the introduction of VAR from the quarter finals onwards, the 2019 edition of the Total AFCON tournament promised to be a record setting event.
