The chairman of the Moroccan candidacy, Moulay Hafid Elalamy, will outline at a press conference in Casablanca details of his country’s financing resources as well as the infrastructure projects that will accompany the construction of the new stadiums for the football event.
The competition will take place in 12 Moroccan cities with the participation of 48 teams. For a FIFA World Cup, the host country must be equipped with stadiums with a capacity of 40,000 for pool matches, 60,000 for the semifinal games, and 80,000 for the final match.
Morocco is planning to build six 40,000-seat stadiums, in addition to a 100,000-seat stadium in Casablanca.
Morocco’s bid is competing against a joint North American effort involving the USA, Canada and Mexico.
