The 2014 African Nations Championship was the third African Nations Championship football tournament. The 16 national teams featured players from the respective national championships. The tournament took place between 11 January and 1 February 2014 in South Africa.[1] Originally, the tournament was to be hosted in Libya.[2] This was the first African Nations Championship tournament where all matches were considered full international matches.[3]

Hosts South Africa were knocked out in the group stages, which has been attributed to the national league not pausing during the tournament. Many clubs wouldn't release their players. CAF announced a rule change for future versions of the tournament.[4]

Venues[edit]

The host cities were announced on 4 May 2012. Polokwane, Bloemfontein, and Cape Town will host the tournament. As the CEO of the LOC, said: "We are not going to let the success of Orange AFCON 2013 get into our heads and we are not taking anything for granted. We are applying the same formula we used during AFCON as well as the lessons learnt to make sure that Orange CHAN 2014 delivers in accordance with our objectives as well as CAF expectations. We are still going to return to the host cities for another round of visits as the LOC, at the end of August and again in November, together with CAF again. This is how serious we take this competition. We also share the same sentiments expressed by the CAF Vice President and Deputy Secretary General of CAF and we are pleased with what we have seen so far.".[6]
