The 2022 African Nations Championship, known as CHAN 2022 for short and/or the TotalEnergies African Nations Championship for sponsorship purposes, is the 7th edition of the biennial association football tournament organized by the Confederation of African Football (CAF), featuring national teams consisting of players playing in their respective local leagues.
This edition of the tournament will be held in Algeria between 13 January and 4 February 2023.
Originally scheduled from 10 July to 1 August 2022, CAF rescheduled the tournament to January 2023 following an announcement at an executive committee meeting held on 10 September 2020 via video conferencing, citing the postponement of the 2020 African Nations Championship to 2021 and the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations to 2022 due to the COVID-19 pandemic as well as other major event already-scheduled in 2022.
The opening match will oppose the host country, Algeria to the Libyan selection, on January 13, 2023, at 5 p.m., at the Baraki stadium; with a capacity of 40,784 covered places, located southeast of Algiers.
Three other sports venues have been selected for the competition.
