Kenya backs Morocco in 2026 World Cup bid

Kenya have stated that they will support Morocco's bid to host 2026 Fifa World Cup.

"Kenya will be firmly behind Morocco's bid for the 2026 World Cup, since the whole of Africa is for Morocco", Football Kenya Federation (FKF) chief Nick Mwendwa told a visiting delegation from Morocco, led by Nigerian former worldwide striker Daniel Amokachi. Up to 207 FIFA member federations will vote at their congress on the eve of the World Cup in Russia. As FKF we are going to support their bid as their project is for all Africans. "This bid is interesting because Morocco is near Kenya and so it will be easy for fans to travel there", he said. "A win for Morocco is a win for Africa".

With the 2018 FIFA World Cup fast approaching a two-time Premier League victor and AFCON Champion believes no African side has what it takes to finally reach the last-four stage.

"This is not a Moroccan bid, it's an African bid and the government of Morocco has promised to share the proceeds of the tournament all over the continent", he said. With South American nations Argentina and Uruguay eyeing the centenary finals in 2030, Morocco are odds on favorites to earn the rights to the 2026 finals.

The renovation and construction of sports facilities are underway, while the North African nation also plans to invest over US$3 billion, out of a total budget of US$15.8 billion allocated to the organisation of the global sports event. South Africa hosted Africa's first ever World cup in 2010.
