Hani Abu Raida, a council member revealed The International Federation of FootballThat FIFA is studying the possibility of launching a global league that brings together the best teams on all continents during the next two years.
This option would be a substitute for the European Super League, which was rejected by the International Federation, and thus would include the participation of African clubs that also wanted to create a new continental competition.
The Spanish newspaper “AS”, quoted statements Hani Abu RaidaAnd he said: “The important thing is that the International Federation as well as the African Union, along with the federations of all continents, are working to organize a world league that allows three or four teams from Africa to play against the best teams in the world, such as Liverpool.”
He added, “Organizing the African Super League was just a proposal, because the football industry is a big financial issue, it is not easy to happen from day to day.”
The 67-year-old is a member of the Executive Committee of the African Confederation, who resigned from his position as president of the Egyptian Football Association after Egypt’s exit from the 16th round at Cairo Stadium in front of South Africa in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.
He concluded by talking about the 2021 African Cup of Nations: “Cameroon is working on developing its infrastructure, and the tournament will be held in January of next year.”
