Liberia’s President, George Weah, Supports Morocco’s Bid For AFCON 2025

After Guinea’s hosting rights were lost due to a lack of preparations, Liberia’s President, George Weah, has come out in full support of Morocco’s ambition to host the 2025 Africa Cup of Nations.

President Weah declared his views in response to “false and misleading reports circulating in several international media outlets” that he supported Algeria’s bid to host the same event.

Instead, he expressed his “fullest and strongest” support for the Moroccan bid, which he has reiterated to the Moroccan government.

“Liberia fully endorses and supports Morocco’s bid to host CAF Nations Cup 2025. I have made this commitment to King Mohamed VI. It is cast in stone” he said in a statement seen by APA on Friday.
Weah cited what he called the remarkable investments Morocco continues to put towards the development of football, which makes them deserve a chance to host the biggest African football fiesta.
The former FIFA World Best Player said Morocco brought immense pride to Africa at the just-ended World Cup in Doha, Qatar and as such, Africa must honour them with the right to host the 2025 Nations Cup.

President Weah said he has already begun campaigning for Morocco with football stakeholders around the continent.
Morocco announced its bid after CAF stripped Guinea of its rights to host the tournament.

Aside from neighbouring Algeria, other nations bidding to host the prestigious tournament are South Africa and Zambia.

Nigeria and Benin are jointly bidding to host the competition in 2025.
