SAFA Insist On Objectivity In World Cup 2026 Vote

SAFA's delegation prepares to vote in FIFA Congress

By Soccer Laduma - Jun 12, 2018 03:21 PM

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.

@@azzaniawest The reason why African states are not doing what you think they should be doing is because people have differences despite looking the same...differences that push them to find love and understanding in people that do not look like them.SA has economic ties with u.s,ties that are much more beneficial to it than those it has with Morocco. There are no simple answers to these kind of issues. Be practical,brother.Ideals are cute,but they are often found wanting in the real world.

@@azzaniawest yes,palestine can fold arms if U.s can attack Morocco. Nato attacked Libya and Morocco,Palestine and all the Arabs folded their arms. U.s has attacked Arabs states and Arabs watched. U.s is destroying Syria and Saudi Arabia,Turkey which are Arab states are helping it do so. You know why? Because people can differ while they look the same...so it is possible for SA to love Palestine and hate morocco.you have a simple and innocent view of international politics.

@@azzaniawest I think you are deliberately missing my point.Palestinians are Arabs,and so are people from Morocco.but they are not the same. Which is why SA has no similar relations with them.You do not love all black people despite being black,and you do not hate all of them.why? Because black people are different. It is for similar reasons SA has differences with Morocco and none with Palestine while both are made up of arabs.

@@azzaniawest What is your point? Palestine may be Arabs but their position in world politics as compared with Morocco are different, hence the support Palestine enjoys from the SA government. And in politics,an enemy of my friend does not automatically become my enemy...Where interests are involved friendship lines tend to be blurred. And the 'Arabs' in my previous comment was a specific reference to Morocco not other Arabs.

Can our delegation once show our african brothers that we too can play dirty. The morrocans were agaibst our bid for 2010. They have to pay even for their treatment to sundowns when they went to play waydad in quarter finals last year.

Jordaan is a politician in sport. He met other politicians(minister of sport) and the decision was taken that objectivity should mean voting for the Americans...it makes sense looking at their position in world politics compared to Morocco,without forgetting forgetting that our ties with the Arabs are not the best.
