Morocco 2026 World Cup Bid Loses America's CONMEBOL Support

(MENAFN- Morocco World News) Rabat – The South American Football Confederation (CONMEBOL) has officially announced its support to the three-nations North American host bid for the 23rd annual 2026 World Cup.

The 42 voices of the Confederation of North, Central American, and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF) has still not officially announced their final decision.

Morocco's campaign to collect the support of global football federations for its bid to host the football world's biggest event has been fruitful thus far. Two months before the FIFA vote, Morocco has already collected 103 votes of support out of the total 207 global federations that will vote in June.

African football federations have offered unanimous support for Morocco's bid, in addition to several Asian, European, and Middle Eastern countries, including Russia, Luxembourg, France, Serbia, Belgium, Qatar, Palestine, and Saint Lucia.

The 2026 Bid Evaluation Task Force will officially visit Morocco from April 16-19, to evaluate 'technical aspects' included in the bid book.
