How To Watch The African Cup Of Nations

The African Cup Of Nations gets underway this weekend and as ever, it is one of the top international tournaments. Smaller nations are everywhere in the AFCON, meaning there is plenty of room for shocks and giant killings. There’s also a chance for the next African cult hero to make his name and follow in the footsteps of players like Asamoah Gyan and El Hadji Diouf, who both made big money moves after impressing for their country. Below, we’ve taken a look at how we can keep up with the AFCON, as well as a full list of fixtures with updated odds and results.

For the latest African Cup Of Nations betting odds, head over to Bet UK’s online betting markets. You’ll also find football betting odds for all the football across the summer.

How Can I Watch The African Cup Of Nations In The UK?

The African Cup Of Nations will be shown live on Eurosport in the UK. Eurosport won the rights to the 2017 AFCON and will again cover the whole tournament for the 2019 summer. The exact schedule is yet to be released, but all the games up to and including the 28th June will be shown on Eurosport 2, rather than Eurosport 1.

Eurosport is available for free for all Sky subscribers, but if not available on Freeview. Instead, you can watch online on the Eurosport player. It will require a monthly subscription, but you can cancel at anytime.

What’s the schedule like for the African Cup Of Nations?

Like with most international tournaments, there are so many fixtures that there will often be more than 1 per day, particularly throughout the group stage. The tournament starts on the 21st June, with one game kicking off at 21:00 GMT.

From there, there will be 3 games per day until the 29th June. For these days, there will be a game at 15:30, 18:00 and 21:00. The final group stage games begin on the 30th June, where both games in each group will need to be played at the same time. This means there will be 4 games per day - 2 at 17:00 and 2 more at 20:00.

The knockout stages start on the 5th of July, 3 days after the end of the group stages. There will be 2 games per day on each day of the knockout rounds until the 3rd place playoff. This will be played on the 17th July, with the final on the 19th July in Cairo.

Round of 16 - 5th July - 8th July
Quarter Finals - 10th July - 11th July
