Moroccans take World Cup bid notes from South Africa

South Africa backs Morocco's bid to host the 2026 World Cup./Ph. DR

Morocco is up against a joint bid from Canada/Mexico/United States and is aiming to become the second African country to host the World Cup after South Africa in 2010. "Morocco can compete with the best in the world", Antoine Bell said.

The task force will use a point-scoring system to evaluate the two candidates and a bid which does not meet a minimum score on a number of different points will be disqualified before the final vote in Russian Federation.

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".

Morocco&rsquo bidding plays greatly on the country's enthusiasm for soccer and its own fan civilization, because of its proximity to both Europe, its compact size along with environment.

The president of the South African Federation of Football (SAFA), Danny Jordaan, promised Morocco's bid committee that he will "personally lobby" Africa's football leaders before the vote.

"It is an old myth that Africa doesn't have the capacity and naysayers should stop using the political argument".

"South Africa is the only African country to have successfully bid and hosted a World Cup and Morocco want to emulate that success".

Bourita told the press after the Summit that the latter "unanimously affirmed its support for Morocco's bid to host the 2016 FIFA World Cup and called on all States to provide full and unwavering support to this bid". That this why they have reached out to Dr Jordaan who was an important member of South Africa's World Cup bid delegation as well as the Local Organising Committee.

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.
