The bid, Morocco’s 6th attempt at hosting the global showpiece, will see the North African Nation pair with Spain and Portugal. CAF President, Dr. Patrice Motsepe, stated that the CAF executive committee would work with all  National Football Federations to ensure the bid succeeded. 

The joint bid from Morocco, Spain, and Portugal is considered a strong contender for the hosting rights. The “Iberian” bid will be up against two other joint bids: A bid from Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and Greece and a joint South American bid.
