2015 Africa U-23 Cup of Nations

The Africa U-23 Cup of Nations (known as the CAF U-23 Championship until 2015) is the main international football competition for CAF nations, played by under 23 years old players. It is held every four years with the top three teams qualifying automatically to the Olympic Games and the fourth placed finisher playing in a play-off against a team from the Asian Football Confederation.

On 6 August 2015, the CAF Executive Committee decided to change the name of the tournament from the CAF U-23 Championship to the Africa U-23 Cup of Nations, similar to the senior's version, Africa Cup of Nations.[1]
