The 1970 African Cup of Nations was the seventh edition of the Africa Cup of Nations, the soccer championship of Africa (CAF). It was hosted by Sudan. Just like in 1968, the field of eight teams was split into two groups of four. Sudan won its first championship, beating Ghana in the final 1−0.
The tournament marked 4 final appearances in a row for Ghana, then tagged as "The Brazil of Africa". This record is currently unequaled.
