From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The 1976 African Cup of Nations was the tenth edition of the African Cup of Nations, the soccer championship of Africa (CAF). It was hosted by Ethiopia. The format of competition changed from 1974: the field of eight teams was still split into two groups of four, but a final stage was introduced with the top two finishers of each of the first stage groups. Morocco won its first championship, by topping the final group. Guinea finished second.
