Patrice Motsepe, President of the Confederation of African Football (CAF), announced that approximately two billion people worldwide have been tuning in to the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) hosted in Côte d’Ivoire.

Motsepe shared this remarkable statistic during a press briefing preceding the AFCON final scheduled for Saturday.

Characterizing this achievement as a source of pride for Africans, Motsepe expressed optimism for future tournaments, stating,

“We have had close to two billion people watching AFCON globally. We should be proud as Africans and the next one will be even better,” he said.

“The success of Africa depends upon Africa working together, trading together, and in football, countries competing and playing together,” he added.

In the highly anticipated final showdown on Sunday, the Super Eagles of Nigeria are set to clash with the host nation, Cote d’Ivoire, at the 60,000-capacity Alassane Ouattara Stadium in Ebimpé, on the outskirts of Abidjan.

Additionally, the third-place match between South Africa and DR Congo is scheduled for Saturday at the iconic Stade Félix Houphouët-Boigny, also located in Abidjan.
