Following a decision by the CAF Organising Committee of the AFCON, all 24 teams will be permitted a final squad of 27 players, four more than the initial 23 from previous tournaments.

The registration of the four additional players on the final list is only an option. “In case a team submits a final squad of between 24 and 27 players, only 23 of them will be available for selection for each match during the tournament.
