Motsepe On Uganda-Tanzania AFCON Joint Bid

CAF President Patrice Motsepe has encouraged Uganda and Tanzania to bid to host the 2027 Africa Cup of Nations.

This, Motsepe said that it’s good for football development in the CECAFA region.

Motsepe said this during his two day visit in Uganda.

“I was told that Uganda and Tanzania are keen to host the 2027 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in these two beautiful countries,” Motsepe said.

“As the President of CAF, I have to support all the 54 Member Associations equally and must say that I would personally not only just welcome but encourage a joint hosting bid between these two countries because it will make a huge contribution to football development in Uganda and Tanzania.

“This region (CECAFA) has not hosted Africa Cup of Nations before and it would be a good move to both Uganda and Tanzania not only in promoting football development but also other areas like tourism, investment and trade.”

Motsepe arrived in the country on Thursday evening, meeting the FUFA Executive Committee and the Fourth Estate.

He concluded his visit on Friday with a meeting with President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni and the Speaker of Parliament, Rt. Hon. Anita Annet Among.
