RABAT: The Morocco 2026 Bid Committee today welcomes five FIFA Task Force members, as well as members of the FIFA administration, for a three day inspection visit to assess Morocco’s ability to host the 2026 FIFA World Cup.
The Task Force will visit several cities in the Kingdom between 17th and 19th April, as well as stadiums, training camps, “Fan Fest” sites and media centres, together with other venues related to the organisation of the competition.
Commenting on this important next step for the Moroccan bid, the President of the Morocco 2026 Bid Committee, Mr. Moulay Hafid Elalamy, said:
“Thanks to the Kingdom’s strategies, led by His Majesty the King and realised by the entire population, Morocco is ready to welcome the FIFA Task Force to our land of football. After considerable work done by the driving forces of the Kingdom to submit Morocco’s outstanding Bid Book to FIFA last month, Morocco is ready to present its achievements and ability to honour its commitments to the FIFA Task Force.
“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. The World Cup in Morocco would not only be a source of pride but also a great catalyst for development. Throughout the week the Bid Committee teams will strive to convey the vision of a humble, passionate, determined bid, but above all a professional and solid one.”
