FIFA presidential candidate Jordan’s Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein is banking on Africa’s support in his race to be elected president of world football governing body FIFA.

The 39-year old Prince Ali is one of the three challengers going up against incumbent Sepp Blatter for the position.

The FIFA vice-president will be aiming to garner further support from Africa during his trip to Zimbabwe.

The continent makes up 54 of the 209 FIFA member countries that will vote in the May 29th election.

The Jordanian arrived in Zimbabwe on Monday and has already met the country’s vice-president, FA president and sports minister.

Next week, he travels to Cairo for CAF’s general assembly.
