The draw for the U-23 Africa Cup of Nations Egypt 2019 has been brought forward from October 3, 2019 to October 2, 2019 in Alexandria, Egypt.
The decision, taken in consultation with the Local Organising Committee, was due to logistical reasons.
The eight teams, namely: host Egypt, Cameroon, Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana, Mali, Nigeria, South Africa and Zambia, will know their foes.
The representatives of the qualified teams are expected to be in attendance for the event that will set the tone for the final tournament scheduled for November 8 to 22, 2019.
The Egyptian capital, Cairo, will host all games, with matches at the Cairo International Stadium and Al Salam Stadium.
The top three finishers at the final tournament will qualify to represent Africa at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
