Stream the Africa Cup of Nations online

Unfortunately, not so many people are interested in this tournament outside Africa. As a consequence, there will not be a lot of TV channels streaming the Africa Cup online. But, there are a few exceptions, so if you want to watch the matches online, you can try one of the following options. We will also update this article as the Africa Cup draws near to add even more details and information on how and where to watch the Africa Cup online.

To watch the Africa Cup online, do as follows:

  • You can watch the event on beIN Sports in the USA and in Canada.
  • You can watch it on Eurosport in the UK (and in other nations in Europe).
  • It will be aired by SABC and SuperSport in South Africa.

Now, these are hard to watch channels, and beIN Sports require an expensive subscription to watch it in the USA. There is no good way to bypass such regulations, but if you use FuboTV in the USA, you will be able to watch beIN Sports and enjoy their live streams from the Africa Cup. And yes, you can later use this also to watch Copa America online, the Premier League online, Champions League online and so much more.

I say it again, FuboTV in the USA is probably the best option and you can try it for free for seven days. After that, the price of FuboTV is 45 USD per month.

To watch FuboTV outside the United States, use the VPN services of PureVPN.

PureVPN has a 31-day refund policy, so if you decide to try FuboTV for free for seven days, and PureVPN together with it, you can cancel both with seven days and get all your money back!

More about Africa Cup of Nations 2019 (AFCON 2019)

The tournament will be arranged in Egypt, and it will start on June 21st and last until July 19th. It was supposed to be arranged in Cameroon, but due to fear of violence and trouble in the nation, they decided to move it to Egypt instead. Cameroon are the title holders, but once again, because of the trouble in Cameroon they moved the tournament to Egypt. Due to Ramadan, they have also moved the dates of the tournament with about one week (which will make the Africa Cup start one week later than planned).

There will be a total of 24 nations taking part in the Africa Cup, and the winner will be qualified for the Confederations Cup.

The biggest stadium of the event is the Cairo Internatinoal Stadium which has space for 75,000 people. Besides this, there will be five other venues in use.

If we consider the FIFA ranking, the best nations taking part in the Africa Cup are Senegal (ranked 23), followed by Tunisia (ranked 28), Nigeria (ranked 42), Morocco (ranked 45), DR Congo (ranked 46), Ghana (ranked 49), and then comes the title holder Cameroon ranked as 54, and Egypt with Mohamed Salah as number 57.

Many of us had great expectations to Salah and Egypt in front of the FIFA World Cup in 2018, but they didn’t really succeed. Will the do better this time?
