South Africa have joined a number of countries in supporting Morocco’s 2026 FIFA World Cup bid.

The South African Football Association’s president, Danny Jordaan reiterated that South Africa will give the North Africans the unqualified support to get another World Cup on the African continent in 2026.

Speaking when he met the Morocco delegation led by Legends and Morocco bid ambassadors, El Hadji Diouf of Senegal, Jordaan alluded to the fact that Africa needed to host another World Cup.

“It is an old myth that Africa doesn’t have the capacity and naysayers should stop using the political argument. Africa hosted the best FIFA World Cup ever and with good support, Morocco can emulate South Africa,” said the SAFA President to Soka25East.

Jordaan assured Morocco that he will personally lobby for COSAFA and the rest of the continent to rally behind the Moroccan bid.

Ex-Cameroonian goalkeeper Antoine Bell said Morocco had all the ingredients of hosting another spectacular FIFA World Cup.

“South Africa showed the way and I am confident Morocco will follow suit. The country has international standards; from the stadiums to top infrastructure. Morocco can compete with the best in the world,” he said.
