Africa must unite to win 2026 World Cup bid – CAF President
President of the Confederation of African Football (CAF), Ahmad Ahmad has called on African countries to unite to help Morocco win the 2026 World Cup bid.
The North African country will compete against a joint bid from Mexico, USA and Canada with voting set for the 13th of June
His comments come on the back of FIFA’s decision to add a new requirement with just a few weeks left to go.
According to him, the continent must unite to ensure that Morocco is awarded the mandate.
“We have only had one opportunity to organize this competition but look at our competitors with only a 10 member federation but they have done it many times.
“We know the benefit of this type of event and we appreciate what the King of Morocco has done because his country has the facilities to pull out of this tournament.
“Nobody in the world can say that Africa is not ready to host the world cup because we are ready.
“Most of the CAF members agree that we have to host the competition and we also have to convince those from other federations to help us be successful he indicated.
