The 7th African Nations Championship (CHAN) begins tonight in Algeria with an opening match between the Local Fennecs and their neighbours Libya. An opening match will take place in the brand-new Nelson Mandela stadium in Algiers.

There were a lot of people on Thursday evening in the Algerian capital to inaugurate the Nelson Mandela stadium, named after the continental icon. CAF President Patrice Motsepe was particularly moved to honour his late compatriot. At his side, FIFA President Gianni Infantino was present as a few months earlier for the previous edition in Cameroon.

The enclosure located in Baraki, southeast of Algiers, will have taken almost 20 years to come out of the ground. Launched in 2009, the construction knew several years marked by long stoppages before being delivered.

This evening, the stands will be packed and Patrice Mostepe will be able to officially launch a CHAN that he announces as "the most successful in history".
