Morocco bids to host 2026 World Cup

Casablanca, (Morocco) –   Morocco has lodged its bid to host the 2026 soccer World Cup, the country’s football federation said in a statement on Friday.

The offer to host the expanded 48-team tournament would compete with a joint bid from the United States, Mexico and Canada.

The North African nation narrowly lost out to South Africa in its offer to stage the 2010 finals.

“The Royal Moroccan Football Federation has officially submitted its candidacy on Friday to organise the World Cup in 2026,” the statement on the federation’s website said.

“The Federation submitted its application to the relevant committees of the Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) to host this global event.”
