The 2004 African Cup of Nations was the 24th edition of the Africa Cup of Nations, the football championship of Africa (CAF). It was hosted by Tunisia. Just like in 2002, the field of sixteen teams was split into four groups of four. Tunisia won their first title, beating Morocco in the final 2−1.[1] Tunisia participated in the 2005 FIFA Confederations Cup in Germany as the representative from CAF.

Host Selection[edit]

Bids :

The organization of the 2004 Africa Cup of Nations was awarded to Tunisia on 4 September 2000 by the CAF Executive Committee meeting in Cairo, Egypt. Voters had a choice between four countries : Malawi and Zambia (joint bid), Tunisia and Zimbabwe.

Benin and Togo were both also candidates at the start (joint bid) but withdrew on 4 September 2000 before the meeting.

This edition was awarded to Tunisia which represented Africa in the 1998 FIFA World Cup in France by taking the majority of the votes of the CAF Executive Committee members which are 13 after its impressive success in the 1994 edition.

This is the third time that Tunisia has hosted the African Cup after 1965 and 1994 Africa Cup of Nations.
