The 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (also referred to as AFCON 2021 or CAN 2021) is scheduled to be the 33rd version of the Africa Cup of Nations, the biennial international men’s football championship of Africa organized by the Confederation of African Football (CAF). The tournament is scheduled to be hosted by Cameroon and will take place from 9 January to 6 February 2022.

The tournament was originally organized to be played in June and July 2021, but the CAF disclosed on 15 January 2020 that due to unfavorable climatic conditions during this period, the tournament would take place from 9 January to 6 February 2021. On 30 June 2020, the CAF moved the tournament for the third time to January 2022 following the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
