The official visit of Head of Spanish government Pedro Sanchez n Morocco has brought with its share of significant announcements. The Spanish Prime Minister has officially proposed a trio bid between Spain, Morocco, and Portugal for the 2030 World Cup bid.
Rabat – The Spanish prime minister announced in a press conference held today in Rabat that he made a proposal to the Moroccan government “to organize a joint bid between Spain, Portugal, and Morocco to host the 2030 World Cup.
He added that through this bid, “ We are launching a joint message, which is that this will be a bid between two continents. The King of Morocco is receptive and we’re going to work on it with Portugal. We are very excited about it,” the Spanish official said.
A joint bid with two EU countries like Spain and Portugal will increase Morocco’s chance to host the massive tournament, especially as FIFA President Gianni Infantino said that he prefers joint bids.
Morocco lost its chance to host the 2026 World Cup against the North American trio (Canada-US-Mexico).
Earlier today, Spanish news outlet El Pais quoted a source from the presidency of the government, who confirmed Spain’s intention to bid for the 2030 World Cup.
Several countries have shown an interest in bidding to host the global tournament, including four Balkan countries, England and a joint bid from South America: Paraguay, Argentina, and Uruguay.
The Spanish prime minister arrived in Morocco today. He met with King Mohammed VI, Head of Government Saad Eddine El Othmani and other Moroccan officials.
