Nearly a billion euros of investments, Cameroon did not skimp on the means for the organization of the competition.
It runs from January 9 to February 6.
Postponed twice, the continental competition arouses great expectations in the country.
The matches will be played in five cities (Yaoundé, Douala, Limbe, Bafoussam and Garoua) and in six stadiums in total, including two in the capital Yaoundé.
The State has invested at least 500 billion CFA francs in the country's sports infrastructure and in land development, with a view to hosting this event.
It was necessary to build many stadiums in the country, including the magnificent stadium of Douala-Japoma, and Olembé in Yaoundé.
The opening match will oppose the indomitable lions of Cameroon to the team of Burkina Faso.
