Rabat – The France-Morocco Friendship Group will promote Morocco’s 2026 World Cup Bid in a special event, scheduled to take place at the French National Assembly on May 15.
The group, chaired by member of the La Republique En Marche, Mustapha Laabid, will feature Morocco’s capability and advantages as host of the football world’s 23rd premier tournament in 2026.
French news outlet AtlasInfo reported that the event will feature the French Football Federation’s Noel Le Graet and president of the National Assembly of France, Francois de Rugy.
Morocco’s 2026 World Cup bid committee, chaired by the Moroccan Minister of Industry Moulay Hafid Elalamy, is also expected to take part in the event.
The France-Morocco Friendship Group intends to showcase its full support for Morocco to host 2026 World Cup.
“For Morocco to host the World Cup–this will be an extraordinary event,” Laabid said, emphasizing that the France-Morocco Friendship Group is mobilized to defend this bid.
France voiced its full support to the Moroccan bid in March in a meeting held between President of Morocco’s Royal Football Federation, Fouzi Lekjaa, and Le Gaet, who considers Morocco’s bid to represent African candidacy.
The influence of the Moroccan bid is spreading. The North African application has received the support of several countries from all over the world, including Saint Lucia, Qatar, Botswana, Nigeria, Kenya, Belgium, France, Egypt, and Tunisia.
