Venues[edit]

In March 2012, the Algerian Football Federation announced that Algiers and Oran were the two candidate cities to host the competition.[2] In May, Algiers was initially chosen as the host city of the competition.[3] However, in August, the Algerian Football Federation announced that Oran and Aïn Témouchent would replace Algiers as the host cities, due to the lack of available stadiums in the latter city.[4]
