It's a showcase for players based in Africa with many earning transfers to major European clubs on the back of their performances in the tournament. The CHAN tournament differs from the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in one major way, restricting team squads only to players currently plying their trade in their home country's domestic league. Therefore, for example, Riyad Mahrez is not eligible to play for Algeria, since he plays for Manchester City in England and not for an Algerian domestic club.
The group stage initially divided the 18 teams divided into five groups. Three of the groups featured four teams (top two advance to the quarterfinals), and the other two groups had only three teams each (only group winner advance to the quarterfinals). Despite Morocco's absence, two nations will still qualify from Group C. Per tournament rules (page 28), the tiebreakers for teams level on points are: Head-to-head results; Goal difference in all group matches; Goals scored in all group matches; Drawing of lots. The eight-team knockout stage will be contested in single-elimination format to produce a winner, with a third-place match also taking place.

NO CHAN for Morocco Unable to fly to #Algeria from Aéroport Salé, two-time defending champions #Morocco have pulled out of #CHAN2023 due to political rows between both North African nations.

Morocco will finally participate in 2023 CHAN in Algeria
The first CHAN tournament in 2009 featured just eight teams. However, the competition has since expanded to 16 in 2011 and now 18 for the current edition (prior to Morocco's withdrawal). CHAN 2023 live stream, TV channel Global TV network beIN Sports and African network SuperSport (sub-Saharan region) hold the rights to the 2023 CHAN tournament, and will be broadcasting games in all territories where they can be accessed.
Why is Morocco not at CHAN 2023? Although the Moroccan team was at the Rabat airport as late as January 13, the green light to fly into Algeria was never granted and the team did not pursue other travel options that would have circumvented the travel ban. The African Football Confederation (CAF) confirmed on January 16 that the competition format would not change without the defending champs. On January 14, the Royal Moroccan Football Federation condemned "the malicious acts and abject maneuvers" at the CHAN opening match (Algeria vs. Libya), making note of racist chants circulated on social media aimed at Moroccans, and a "provocative and surreal speech" delivered by Nelson Mandela's grandson, Mandla Mandela, in which he called for the liberation of Western Sahara, the subject of an ongoing dispute between Morocco and Algeria.
