    The Confederation of African Football (CAF) today, Friday, unanimously endorsed the "FIFA Conference's decision to conduct a feasibility study" on organizing the World Cup every two years instead of once every four years as is the case at the moment . 

    Thus, CAF becomes the first continental federation to officially support the controversial project to organize the World Cup every two years, similar to the African Nations Cup . 

    The General Assembly of the Continental Confederation, during its meeting on Friday in Cairo, also supported the organization of the African Super League for clubs, but it did not give more details about it yet . 

    This vote by a show of hands comes less than a month before the summit that will be held via video communication technology for FIFA, which will discuss (without a vote) the organization of the World Cup every two years, an idea that collides with strong reservations, especially in Europe .
