The CAF Cup of Nations (officially CAN) is the main international association football championship in Africa. This year, it will be held from June 21st to July 19th, 2019 and the tournament will be held in Egypt. It will be shown a few different locations in the world. If you are in the US or UK, you can easily watch the options there. If you are going to be someplace else where they do not offer coverage, you will need to use a VPN to enjoy the tournament.
Though it was created in 1957, competitors have played the tournament every two years since 1968. At the time of creation, only 3 nations competed in the tournament. Of course, since that time, the numbers have grown healthily. Here is a list of the nations with the most titles.
- Egypt – 7
- Cameroon – 5
- Ghana – 4
- Nigeria – 3
- Ivory Coast – 2
- DR Congo – 2
- Zambia, Tunisia, Sudan, Algeria, Ethiopia, Morocco, South Africa, Congo – 1
You can find coverage for this Tournament on BeIN Sports in the US and Eurosport in the UK. There may be more going forward, but that information is not available now. Since they are premium channels, you need to have a cable or satellite subscription. If you are a cord cutter or are not located in the US, you can always use an external streaming service such as Fubo.TV. Follow these steps to view from everywhere.
- After signing up for a VPN service, connect to a server located in the US or the UK.
- Go to the Fubo.TV or Eurosport website and enter your credentials. If you chose to use an external service, log into it.
- If you have not signed up for the standalone service previously, you will need to sign up for that too, also using a VPN.
- Enjoy the Africa Cup of Nations.
