Confederation of African Football president Patrice Motsepe said the envisioned bid by Namibia and Botswana to host the 2027 Africa Cup of Nations will help in developing their infrastructures, stadiums, and football pitches as well as show young boys and girls that there are opportunities in playing football at the highest level in their country or Africa. Motsepe said he encourages as many African countries as possible to come together and put up bids to host the continental championship as this is in line with their objective of greater unity, greater solidarity and co-operation amongst all nations.
