In a statement posted on the website of the South African Football Association (SAFA), SAFA President Danny Jordaan said that his country will give the North Africans "the unqualified support to get another World Cup on the African continent in 2026".

The evaluation panel are due to conduct a three-day visit to Morocco, which begins tomorrow and concludes on Thursday (April 19).

The ECA declined to comment last week when the 2022 World Cup expansion idea was announced on Thursday in Buenos Aires, Argentina, at a meeting of South American soccer body CONMEBOL which was attended by Infantino.

Morocco is up against a joint bid from Canada/Mexico/United States and is aiming to become the second African country to host the World Cup after South Africa in 2010.

The visit of the Evaluation Task Force comes after Morocco 2026 openly criticised Federation Internationale de Football Association, claiming the organisation had changed the scoring system just 24 hours before they officially submitted their attempt.

"FIFA seems to be on an expansion drive", said Olsson, who this year joined UEFA's executive committee to represent the leagues.

South Africa voiced on Monday its backing to Morocco's bid to host the 2026 World Cup.

According to Elalamy this visit would "strive to convey the vision of a humble, passionate, determined bid, but above all a professional and solid one".

Russia, France and South Africa are among the countries to have pledged their support for the Moroccan bid.

Conmebol in a statement: 'Taking into account the positive impact that the celebration of the Fifa World Cup in Mexico in 1986 and in the United States in 1994 had on the interest, development and projection of football in those countries and in general in the region, the member associations of Conmebol consider that, after three decades, the time is right to give new impetus to football in the Concacaf region, where more than 500 million people now live'.

The 2026 Morocco bid committee will hold a press conference in Casablanca later to inform the public about the visit.
