The historic home ground of the Egyptian national team, as well as domestic clubs Zamalek and Al Ahly FC, the Cairo International Stadium was opened in 1960, renovated in 2005 and again this year ahead of the finals. It is the largest stadium in the capital with a seated capacity of 75 000.

It is located in Nasr City in Giza and it has hosted the 1986 and 2006 Afcon finals and was also used during the 2009 FIFA U-20 World Cup.

This venue is set to host six Group A matches, a Round of 16 match, a quarter-final, a semi-final and the tournament final.

The stadium is home to Egyptian Premier League sides Al Ittihad, Smouha and Olympic Club and it is known locally as the ‘home of football’.

Five group stage matches and one Round of 16 match are scheduled to take place here.
