Kenya Ready Joint Bid AFCON 2027

By Chimezie Nebolisa

Kenya has announced its intent to bid to co-host the 2027 Africa Cup of Nations with other countries in East Africa.

An official statement from the Presidency said that the intention is to build a national team that can qualify for the 2030 World Cup, a tournament the country have never qualified for.

The statement comes shortly after FIFA decided to lift a suspension imposed on the Football Kenya Federation in February.

The statement read: "The Council of Ministers noted that the organisation of the cup in cooperation will show the power of sports in improving regional cooperation.”
