Non-Competing Nations

A number of nations did not compete at all during the 1998 Cup of Nations, for a variety of reasons. Some did not enter the initial qualification stages of the tournament, while others were banned from competition for withdrawing during the qualification for the 1996 African Cup of Nations.

Did Not Enter

Banned From Entering

Nigeria was banned from entering because of their withdrawal from the 1996 Cup after having already qualified for the final stage. The other nations withdrew during qualification for the 1996 tournament, preventing them from entering the 1998 Cup.

Withdrew

  •  Sudan withdrew due to unrest in the eastern part of the country.
  •  Central African Republic were disqualified after its government did not allow the team to travel to Sierra Leone for a match on January 25.
  •  Sierra Leone withdrew before the final two qualifying matches.
