Africa must unite to win 2026 World Cup bid – Caf President

President of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) Ahmad Ahmad believes the continent must resist any eternal attempts to discredit Morocco’s 2026 World Cup bid.

The Moroccans 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.

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 of this tournament.

Nobody in the world can say that Africa i 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.

According to him the continent must unite to ensure that Morocco is awarded the mandate.
