CAF President, Motsepe, supports FIFA's move to stage World Cup every 2 years

Cairo, Egypt (PANA) - CAF President, Patrice Motsepe, and his executive committee have revealed their stance on FIFA’s idea of organizing the World Cup every two years.

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) said in a press release that Motsepe, along with his Exco, have pledged their support to the idea of a biennial World Cup for both men and women.

FIFA currently hosts the world spectacle every four years.

“The CAF EXCO, chaired by Dr. Patrice Motsepe, met on Friday 16 July 2021, in Rabat, Morocco, where the EXCO gave its support to the idea of organizing the FIFA World Cup every two years,” the statement read in part.

Meanwhile Motsepe has also turned up the heat on the Interclub Competitions Committee to accelerate the feasibility study of the African Supranational League  (Super League) project, something that the former Mamelodi Sundowns supremo has been very vocal about.

“We discussed the African Super League, and many broadcasting companies expressed that they want to be a part of it. The Interclub committee is assessing the situation and will advise on an inclusive way so that every country in Africa benefits from this project. The benefits of the African Super League will be shared all over the continent’s 54 countries,” the CAF President told journalists in a recent press conference hosted at Mohamed VI Sports Complex Morocco.
