The tournament was originally scheduled to take place in June and July 2021 but the Confederation of African Football announced on January 15, 2020 that due to unfavorable weather conditions during this period, the tournament will take place from January 9 to February 6, 2021. On June 30, 2020, the CAF transferred the tournament for the second time to January 2022 following the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic across the continent, while retaining the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations name for sponsorship purposes.

AFCON 2022 group Tiebreakers

If two teams finish equally on points in the group stage, the following tie-break will be applied to determine their ranking on the standing, according to the official AFCON competition rules:

  • Most points obtained in matches between the two teams;
  • Goal difference in all group matches;
  • Most goals scored in all group matches;
  • Drawing of lots (i.e. random draw).

If three or more teams finished tied on points at the end of the group stage, the tiebreaker formula changes slightly:

  • Most points obtained in matches between the teams concerned;
  • Goal difference in matches between the teams concerned;
  • Most goals scored in matches between the teams concerned;
  • Goal difference in all group matches;
  • Mostr goals scored in all group matches;
  • Drawing of lots (i.e. random draw).

One twist to the scenario involving three or more teams: If tiebreakers Nos. 1-3 succeed in separating at least one team from the rest, then those same tiebreakers Nos. 1-3 are reapplied to the remaining teams before moving on to criteria Nos. 4-6.
