Conmebol backs United Bid for 2026 FIFA World Cup

Morocco's bid to stage the 2026 World Cup has reached its most crucial phase to date with the arrival of FIFA's evaluation panel for a three-day visit that could make or break the north African country's chances.

Morocco's World Cup Bid is spreading its influence across the African continent.

Morocco, facing fierce competition from the United 2026 Bid, had last month questioned FIFA President Gianni Infantino's impartiality amid various "unconfirmed" reports that he is favouring the joint bid proposal.

"The World Cup in Morocco would not only be a source of pride but also a great catalyst for development".

The visit of the Evaluation Task Force comes after Morocco 2026 openly criticised Federation Internationale de Football Association, claiming the organisation had changed the scoring system just 24 hours before they officially submitted their attempt.

"Morocco is innovative and compact concept to ensure operational efficiency, outstanding profitability and a lasting legacy in Morocco and Africa", said Moulay Hafid Elalamy, president of the bid committee, in the statement.
