Caf backs two-yearly FIFA World Cup

Ghana Vs Uruguay at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa

African football's governing body Caf supports staging the World Cup every two years and is pushing ahead with plans for a continental Super League, according to a statement released on Monday. 

An executive committee meeting chaired by president Patrice Motsepe in Morocco at the weekend backed a Saudi Arabian proposal at a recent Fifa meeting to change the frequency of the World Cup. 

Since Uruguay hosted the first tournament in 1930, the biggest single-sport event has been held every four years apart from a break during World War II.
