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. NO CHAN for Morocco Unable to fly to #Algeria from Aéroport Salé, two-time defending champions #Morocco have pulled out of #CHAN2023 due to political rows between both North African nations.
Why is Morocco not at CHAN 2023? Although the Moroccan team was at the Rabat airport as late as January 13, the green light to fly into Algeria was never granted and the team did not pursue other travel options that would have circumvented the travel ban. The African Football Confederation (CAF) confirmed on January 16 that the competition format would not change without the defending champs.

] Il y a des règles à la CAF/FIFA, pas de politique dans le football. »pic. com/m8nlkSiZbt — Joueurs Marocains 🇲🇦 (@JoueursMA) January 13, 2023 MORE: Updated FIFA World Rankings What is CHAN 2023? How is it different from AFCON? The African Nations Championship (CHAN) is a tournament established in 2009 to run biennially to help develop and promote the domestic game in Africa. It's a showcase for players based in Africa with many earning transfers to major European clubs on the back of their performances in the tournament.
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. Group stage Group A table table Pos Team Pts Matches W-L-D Goal Diff. 1. Algeria-Q 6 2 2-0-0 +2 2.
The CHAN tournament differs from the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in one major way, restricting team squads only to players currently plying their trade in their home country's domestic league. Therefore, for example, Riyad Mahrez is not eligible to play for Algeria, since he plays for Manchester City in England and not for an Algerian domestic club. The first CHAN tournament in 2009 featured just eight teams.
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. The event is officially labeled as a 2022 event, but it was pushed by six months due to a scheduling backlog caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The tournament, which has been expanded to feature 18 national teams made up exclusively of domestic-based players, is held every two years, alternating years with the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON). Despite the squad restriction, CHAN matches count as full internationals for player caps as well as in the calculation of the FIFA World Rankings.
However, only 17 of the 18 teams that qualified for the 2023 event will be participating after two-time defending CHAN champions Morocco were not authorised to fly into Algeria. The issue stems from the tense relations and ongoing disputes between the neighboring countries which led to Algeria cutting diplomatic ties in 2021 and closing its airspace to Moroccan aircraft and air travel originating in the country.
