SAFA Insist On Objectivity In World Cup 2026 Vote

Total objectivity will be the driving force when the South African Football Association show their support for either the Moroccan or the joint North American (comprising of Mexico and Canada) 2026 World Cup bids.

The decision on which bid SAFA will back and vote for will be one of the biggest decisions taken by the FA and its president Dr Danny Jordaan since he was re-elected as president for another five-year term.

Soccer Laduma reported previously that SAFA were in the process of deciding on the delegation which will represent the FA when all FIFA’s members convene in Russia ahead of the World Cup to vote for the nation which will host the spectacle in eight years.

The Siya crew can now confirm that SAFA’s President, CEO Dennis Mumble and newly elected Vice President Ria Ledwaba engaged with Sports Minister Ms Tokozile Xasa and the delegation is ready for the congress on Wednesday.

“We know which bid to support and the decision is taken purely from an objective point of few,” revealed a source close to the FA.

“All considerations have been taken into account and our backing will be for the betterment on football and strengthen SAFA’s position on a global stage,” added the source. 

The World Cup officially begins with the Group A fixture between hosts, Russia taking on Saudi Arabia on Thursday.
