Morocco has launched its campaign to host the 2026 World Cup in Casablanca.

The North African nation, making its fifth bid to host the finals, faces competition from a joint bid proposed by Canada, Mexico and the USA.  The North African nation has failed in four previous World Cup bids – in 1994, 1998, 2006 and 2010.

Moulay Hafid Elalamy, Chairman of the bid committee said: “Morocco 2026 will showcase the best of football, at the heart of the world. We promise to stage a tournament overflowing with real passion and to celebrate the values of unity and peace. 

“A World Cup in Morocco will deliver commercial success and leave a long-lasting legacy and if we win the honour of hosting we believe the winners will be football, the young people of our nation, Africa and the world.”

The decision on who will host the event will be made on 13th June, the eve of the 2018 World Cup in Moscow.

In 2010, the tournament was hosted by South Africa, leading Africa to stage the World Cup for the first time.
