"The members of the Committee welcomed the bid of Morocco to organize the 2026 World Cup," said Ahmad, noting that CAF is proud that an African country can host a World Cup.

On the hand, he noted that the Committee unanimously decided, for the best interests of football, to withdraw the organization of the African Championship of Local Players (CHAN 2018) from Kenya, due to infrastructure and the general atmosphere.
