While some African countries don’t have a CAF approved stadium to host International matches, Countries like South Africa, Egypt, Nigeria Cameroon and Morocco have the privileges of hosting international matches in more than 5 stadiums.

South Africa lead the way of most stadiums approved by the Confederation of Africa Football (CAF) to host International matches.

South Africa had 13 approved Stadiums last year before CAF reduced it to 12 by banning the Lucas Moripe Stadium from hosting International matches earlier this year.

Others on the list are Egypt and Nigeria with 7, Cameroon and Morocco with 6 while Equatorial Guinea follow with the four stadiums that hosted the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations.

With most stadiums on the list approved last year for the 2022 World Cup Qualifiers, The Confederation of Africa Football (CAF) will revisit the facilities of her members Country ahead of the 2023 AFCON qualifiers to approve more and also ban the ones that didn’t meet the required minimum standards.

Senegal with no approved Stadium has already forwarded the new Diamniadio Olympic stadium for approval ahead of their playoffs clash with the pharaohs of Egypt.
