Yaya Touré strides onto the stage.

Here comes Yaya Touré… off we go!

Ahmed Hassan: "Good luck to all of the teams taking part, I hope it's an great, honest competition".

Now, former Egypt captain Ahmed Hassan, who made a record 184 appearances for the Pharaohs is on stage. We're ready for the draw, we hope, possibly.

A few Africa Cup of Nations stats while we are waiting: all-time top scorer in this tournament is the great Samuel Eto'o - much loved in these parts, with 18 goals for Cameroon. The oldest player to score at an AFCON tournament is Zambia's Kalusha Bwalya who was 36 years and 167 days young when he found the net in the 2000 edition.

  Former Ghana international Anthony Baffoe is now onstage addressing the audience. We've had an hour and a half build-up to the draw... don't worry, it'll definitely be starting soon!

Worldwide audience following the 2019 AFCON Draw  is around one billion, say organizers...

The draw ceremony has been very impressive so far, if a little long. More dancers have taken to the stage. Should be starting soon...

Egyptian Football Federation (EFA) President Hany Hassan Abo Rida: "Today everybody all over the world is watching tonight's draw. We hope for a future that his happier, brighter and a tournament which reflects the peace and love that Egypt is known for".

The pre-draw entertainment provided by an African dance troupe who we must say, are very good indeed.

CAF President Ahmad Ahmad: From the depth of my heart, I am here to pay tribute to African football and our players, without whom, I would not be here today. I am sure that this year's tournament will be a great success. I would also like to congratulate all 24 nations for taking part in this beautiful event".

This will be the 32nd edition of the Africa Cup of Nations and the first to take place in European summer. This year's showpiece was moved back as to not coincide with Ramadan which will be celebrated from 5 May to 4 June.

What a truly beautiful setting... we are about to get underway in Giza.

Has there ever been a more breathtaking stage for a football tournament draw? We very much doubt it. Absolutely stunning.

The stage for this evening's draw, the great pyramids in Egypt, one of the seven wonders of the world, believed to have been built approximately 2500 BC. Stunning.

Just a reminder about how the tournament will unfold: the top two teams from the six groups will qualify directly for the quarter finals and will be joined by the four best third-placed teams. Host cities Cairo, Alexandria, Suez and Ismailia will stage the matches at 2019 AFCON.

Draw is about to get underway...

Defending champions Cameroon are in Pot 1 alongside Egypt, Senegal, Tunisia, Nigeria and Morocco. The Indomitable Lions, coached by former Real Madrid player Clarence Seedorf, are among the favourites to win the trophy.

Several Premier League players are expected to be taking part in this year's AFCON - Liverpool could have three players at the tournament: Mohamed Salah with host Egypt, Sadio Mané with Senegal and Naby Keita with Guinea. Other players who will have the chance to be crowned champions of Africa include Arsenal's Alex Iwobi (Nigeria), Manchester City's Riyad Mahrez (Algeria) and Man United's Eric Bailly.

There will be three countries competing for the first time in this new, expanded AFCON - Madagascar, Mauritania and Burundi - the first two are in Pot 3 and the latter is in Pot 4.

After Egypt, Cameroon have won the tournament the most times - they have five titles, Ghana have four and Nigeria have three.

This will be the fouth time that Egypt has hosted the Africa Cup of Nations. They staged the tournament in 1874, 1986 and 2006 and are the nation to have lifted the trophy the most times, winning the first edition in 1957 and crowned champions again in 1986, 1998, 2006, 2008 and 2010.

The great pyramids in Giza, just south west of Cairo, Egypt provide a stunning backdrop for tonight's AFCON draw, which will be performed by a familar face to football fans in England and Spain - former Barcelona and Manchester City star Yaya Touré. Joining him onstage will be the player who holds the record for the most appearances for Egypt with 184 caps for his country, Ahmed Hassan.

Good evening and welcome to our live coverage of this evening's 2019 AFCON draw. This year, the tournament has been expanded to feature 24 nations - eight more than the 2017 edition, which was won by Cameroon who will be defending the title in Egypt.

2019 CAF Africa Cup of Nations Live draw preview

The 24 teams to have qualified for the biggest ever Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) will find out their group-stage opponents in tonight's draw in the Egyptian capital of Cairo (20:00 CEST).

Originally awarded to defending African champions Cameroon, who will now host the 2021 finals, AFCON 2019 was switched to Egypt in January over delays in the Cameroonians' preparations for holding the event. In all, four cities - Cairo, Alexandria, Suez and Ismailia - will stage games.

How the draw will work

For the AFCON draw, the countries involved in the expanded tournament - which was previously restricted to 16 teams - will be separated into the following four pots, based on their position in the FIFA world rankings published on 4 April:

Pot 1: Egypt, Cameroon, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Tunisia, Senegal

Pot 2: Morocco, Nigeria, Algeria, Guinea, Mali, DR Congo

Pot 3: Uganda, South Africa, Guinea-Bissau, Zimbabwe, Angola, Burundi

Pot 4: Mauritania, Namibia, Benin, Kenya, Madagascar, Tanzania

The sides will be placed in six groups of four, with the top two qualifying automatically for the knockout stages and the four best third-placed teams also going through. Held between 21 June and 19 July, this year's AFCON will be the first to be staged in Europe's summer.
