The head of Guinea’s ruling junta has made the organisation of the 2025 African Cup of Nations, awarded to his country, a “priority” programme and has made the associated expenditure an emergency.


The announcement was made on Monday night ahead of the expected arrival on Tuesday of a mission from the Confederation of African Football (CAF), which is expected to check on the progress of the project on-site until Thursday.


The head of the junta, Colonel Mamady Doumbouya, appointed a new organising committee in March, ousting the previous team, one of whose members publicly expressed doubts about the feasibility of the project.
