The President of Uganda Museveni has revealed the reason they got the 2027 African Cup of Nations hosting right ahead of Nigeria, Senegal and other established countries.
The Confederation of African Football ( CAF) on Wednesday awarded the hosting right of the 2027 AFCON to the trio of Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania( Joint-bid) at the expense of Nigeria and Benin ( joint-bid) Senegal and Zambia.
“Commonsense showed even the assessors, I am sure, that that Pan-African effort was, logically, the most attractive, apart from any other considerations.
We can only get more benefits if we extend this logic to other areas,” he said.
” Also, pooling together the sports infrastructure like stadia, made our bid more attractive. I salute the African sporting Authorities for this logically unimpeachable decision.”
He applauded CAF for the decision to allow the East African region to host the tournament.
