Adidas ACN Marocco 2015 – FIFA Approved
Adidas ACN Marocco 2015 with special ball design from Adidas.
The 2015 Africa Cup of Nations, also known as the Orange Africa Cup of Nations Morocco 2015 for sponsorship reasons, is scheduled to be the 30th edition of the Africa Cup of Nations, the football championship of Africa (CAF), held from 17 January to 8 February 2015. For the second time, the tournament is scheduled to be hosted by Morocco, who previously hosted it in 1988. A total of 16 teams will compete in the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations. As host country, Morocco qualified automatically.
Prior to November 2014, it was expected that Morocco would be the host county (and thus be pre-qualified). However as Morocco has missed the 9 November deadline for confirming their willingness to host (because of the Ebola virus epidemic in West Africa), and Morocco were expelled from the tournament. Equatorial Guinea was chosen as the new host, and despite having played in the qualifiers and been disqualified due to fielding an ineligible player, they now qualify for the tournament automatically.
