CHAN and CAN, what are the differences?
The CHAN is the equivalent of the CAN but reserved only for local players, who evolve in the country concerned. It is therefore not selection A but selection A’ which takes part in the tournament. Some nations, such as Sudan and Ethiopia, however, rely on an A selection largely made up of players playing in the country and there are no real differences between the A team and the A team.
The situations are also very different at coach level: some countries have opted for the A coach (Libya with Corentin Martins, Mauritania with Amir Abdou, Uganda with Milutin Sredojevic), others with specific coaches for A’, like Algeria with Madjid Bougherra or Senegal with Pape Thiaw.
The format of CHAN 2022
For the first time, the CHAN is disputed in the presence of 18 selections. Concretely, the Confederation of African Football (CAF) has therefore opted for three groups made up of four teams and two groups made up of three teams. The first type of groups allows the 1er and at 2e group to qualify for the quarter-finals, while the second type only offers a qualifying ticket, to the 1st.
Due to the last minute morocco packagegroup C finally includes only three teams but also obeys the rules of a group of four teams.
A total of 29 matches will be on the programme: 23 in the group stage, four quarter-finals, two semi-finals, the match for the 3e place then the final.
CHAN 2022 dates
Initially, CHAN 2022 was to take place at the beginning of 2022. However, due to the postponement of CAN 2021 to early 2022 due to coronavirus, CAF has decided to postpone CHAN for a year in order to avoid that the two competitions take place at the same time.

The most successful countries in CHAN
Morocco has won the last two editions (2018, 2020) and equaled the record of DR Congo, crowned in 2009 during the first edition. Tunisia (2011) and Libya (2014) also have one crown.
The stars of CHAN 2022
Unlike the 2020 edition, marked by the presence of Vincent Aboubakar, Ayoub El Kaabi or even Soufiane Rahimi, the CHAN 2022 is disputed without a real star to speak of, but we can highlight the presence of a few notable players: the Algerian internationals A Mokhtar Belkhiter, Ayoub Abdellaoui, Haïthem Loucif (ex-Angers) and Karim Aribi (ex-Nîmes); Senegalese goalkeeper Alioune Badara Faty, winner of CAN 2021, plus Cameroon Globalists Jerome Ngom Mbekeli and Souaibou Marou and Ghana Ibrahim Danlad and Daniel Afriyie.
