The TotalEnergies Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) is the largest sporting event in Africa and the third largest football competition in the world after the FIFA World Cup and the UEFA European Championship. TotalEnergies is the title sponsor of the tournament as part of its eight-year partnership agreement with the Confederation Africaine de Football (CAF). We invite you to take a look back at the 2021 edition of the TotalEnergies AFCON held in Cameroon.
This was the 33rd edition of the TotalEnergies AFCON, the second organized by Cameroon after the 1972 edition (won that year by Congo). 24 teams will try to win the so desired trophy among which Algeria, the title holder and the host country, Cameroon.
51 teams participated in the elimination phase initiated in October 2019 with a view to participating in the final phase. 24 teams then competed in the group stage in the host country. At the end of the 50th match, the names of the two finalists were known: Senegal & Egypt.
This undecided final between the unfortunate finalist of 2019 and the record holder of victories in the competition brought players and spectators to the penalty shootout. The epilogue of this final turned then to be favorable to Senegal who won their first TotalEnergies Africa Cup of Nations on this occasion.
Senegal thus became the 15th nation to enter its name on the list of winners of the TotalEnergies Africa Cup of Nations. Egypt continues to lead the way with seven wins, followed by Cameroon with five titles and Ghana (4 titles).
