Welcome to popular Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a popular Wikipedia page every day.

With 202,858 views on Wednesday, 24 January 2024 our article of the day is 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

The 2023 Africa Cup of Nations, known in short as the 2023 AFCON or CAN 2023 and for sponsorship purposes as the TotalEnergies 2023 Africa Cup of Nations, is the ongoing 34th edition of the biennial African association football tournament organised by Confederation of African Football. It is hosted by Ivory Coast, the second time it has done so having hosted the 1984 tournament.

This edition of the tournament was initially planned to take place in summer 2023, making it the third since 2019 to take place during the Northern Hemisphere's summer, in order to reduce scheduling conflicts with European club teams and competitions. However in July 2022 it was postponed by CAF to 13 January – 11 February 2024 due to the concerns about the summer weather in Ivory Coast. The competition retained the original name for sponsorship purposes. This followed the 2021 edition in Cameroon also being moved to the Northern Hemisphere's winter season for similar reasons. Senegal are the defending champions.

This recording reflects the Wikipedia text as of 02:36 UTC on Thursday, 25 January 2024.
