The African Football Confederation (CAF) confirmed on January 16 that the competition format would not change without the defending champs. On January 14, the Royal Moroccan Football Federation condemned "the malicious acts and abject maneuvers" at the CHAN opening match (Algeria vs. Libya), making note of racist chants circulated on social media aimed at Moroccans, and a "provocative and surreal speech" delivered by Nelson Mandela's grandson, Mandla Mandela, in which he called for the liberation of Western Sahara, the subject of an ongoing dispute between Morocco and Algeria.
DR-Congo gunning for upset of ElephantsThe Democratic Republic of the Congo haven't lost a match yet in the Africa Cup of Nations, but they're coming up against one of the tournament's elite for the first time in the semifinals.

CHAN 2023 match schedule, results, tables, teams for African Nations Championship and how AFCON is differentThe 2023 African Nations Championship, or CHAN for short, is being played in Algeria this January.

There were 18 teams qualified for the tournament from six different regional zones, but Morocco was not permitted to travel by air to participate and so did not send its team. The group stage initially divided the 18 teams divided into five groups. Three of the groups featured four teams (top two advance to the quarterfinals), and the other two groups had only three teams each (only group winner advance to the quarterfinals). Despite Morocco's absence, two nations will still qualify from Group C. The eight-team knockout stage will be contested in single-elimination format to produce a winner, with a third-place match also taking place.
The first CHAN tournament in 2009 featured just eight teams. However, the competition has since expanded to 16 in 2011 and now 18 for the current edition (prior to Morocco's withdrawal).
