CAN 2023: The winner's price on the rise again

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has set the amount of the reward intended for the future winner of CAN 2023. This year, the African champion will receive a record sum of 5 million US dollars.

In a gesture aimed at promoting the competition, CAF has decided to increase the prize money for CAN 2023. The amount of 5 million US dollars, or approximately 3,01 billion FCFA, represents a slight increase compared to the last edition in 2021 where the winner, Senegal, received 4,5 million US dollars, equivalent to 2 billion 950 million FCFA.

The competition will open on January 13, 2024 with an opening match between Ivory Coast and Guinea-Bissau. All participating teams will fight intensely until the final, scheduled for February 11, 2024 at the Alassane Ouattara Olympic Stadium in Ebimpé.
