Preparations for this global event, which will take place in Marrakech and Rabat, were the focus of a meeting of the Organizing Committee of the 2014 FIFA Club World Cup, held last Tuesday at the FIFA headquarters.
During this meeting, FIFA said it is satisfied with the way Morocco is making its preparations for the 2014 FIFA Club World Cup.
The Moroccan delegation briefed the committee on the various actions taken by the kingdom to host the 2014 FIFA Club World Cup, including the renovation of the Prince Moulay Abdellah Sports Complex.
A FIFA delegation visited, early September, the Prince Moulay Abdellah complex in Rabat, which has been undergoing for over five months extensive renovation works.
Five clubs have so far qualified for this year’s edition of the Club World Cup: Moroccan champions Moghreb Tetouan, Real Madrid (UEFA), Auckland City (OFC), San Lorenzo (CONMEBOL) and Cruz Azul (CONCACAF).
Two more teams are still to be determined: the champions of Africa, who will be crowned on November 2nd, and the champions of Asia, who will seal their place on November 1st.
