The sovereign ruler of Morocco, HM King Mohammed VI has confirmed the nation’s joint bid with Portugal and Spain to host the 2030 FIFA World Cup.
Morocco have in recent years made steps to host major football tournaments in the World, having made their intentions known to host the 2025 AFCON tournament.
They also successfully hosted the 2022 FIFA Club World Cup and look to add the world’s biggest showdown to their list.
“I would like to announce, before this assembly, that the Kingdom of Morocco has decided, together with Spain and Portugal, to present a joint bid to host the 2030 World Cup,” said HM the King in a message during the presentation of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) President’s Outstanding Achievement Award 2022 to the Sovereign in Rwanda’s Kigali.
“This joint bid, which is unprecedented in football history, will bring together Africa and Europe, the northern and southern Mediterranean, and the African, Arab and Euro-Mediterranean worlds,” said the Sovereign in this message read by the Minister of National Education, National Formation and Sport, Chakib Benmoussa.
Morocco finished fourth in the 2022 FIFA World Cup, becoming the first African side to record this feat.
