Arab Summit Voices Unanimous Support for Morocco's 2026 World Cup Bid

Mutko Russia to cooperate with FIFA to establish reported acts of racist chants

South African soccer leader Danny Jordaan has promised Morocco "unqualified support" to host the 2026 World Cup in a contest against a combined North American bid.

Morocco's bid committee said in an statement that the task-force will visit with stadiums as well as several towns involving April 1719, training peaks and buff sites, along with venues.

Jordaan assured Morocco that he will personally lobby for Cosafa and the rest of the continent to rally behind the Moroccan bid.

Morocco, which is making its fifth bid to host a World Cup football tournament, has as rival the joint bid of the US, Mexico and Canada.

"Morocco is offering FIFA and the global football family an innovative and compact concept to ensure operational efficiency, outstanding profitability and a lasting legacy in Morocco and Africa", said the bid committee's president, Moulay Hafid Elalamy in a statement.

He added that the visit would "strive to convey the vision of a humble, passionate, determined bid, but above all a professional and solid one".

Federation Internationale de Football Association congress would be making it final decision concerning the host of the World Cup of 2026 on the 13th of June this year.


The Inspection Team will use a point-scoring system to evaluate the two candidates.

Morocco has already made four unsuccessful bids to host the tournaments for 1994, 1998, 2006 and 2010, although it was close on three occasions.

FIFA has 21-1 manhood associations who all hold a vote although FAs can not vote worldcup hosting should they have been part of a bidding or even should they truly are suspended at the time from FIFA.

Thus far both candidacies have receiving some public backing: Morocco has the support of France, Russia and other European nations aside for the bulk of the African vote in its favor including South Africa.

Former Cameroon goalkeeper Joseph Antoine Bell said Morocco had all the ingredients of hosting another spectacular Fifa World Cup.

FIFA has 211 member-associations who all hold one vote each at Congress.
