The summit of the world football organization FIFA will kick off in Doha on January 11.
Rabat – This is the second time the Qatari capital is host to FIFA’s football summit. The symposium will continue until January 13 before moving to Marrakech on January 15.
Football experts will convene in Marrakech January 15-17. According to Moroccan channel 2M, the Royal Moroccan Football Federation (FRMF) confirmed the participation of FIFA’s President Gianni Infantino.
The event aims to foster dialogue between world football associations, according to Infantino.
“Through the FIFA Executive Football Summits, we can tackle global football matters while considering the local issues facing those running football in the member associations around the world,” he said.
The event also serves as a platform to review the possible joint 2030 World Cup bid of Morocco, Portugal, and Spain.
“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,” said Sanchez.
Morocco showed determination to host the 2030 World Cup but remains undecided whether it will submit a joint or a solo bid.
Several countries have shown an interest in bidding to host the global tournament, including four Balkan countries, England, and three South American countries: Paraguay, Argentina, and Uruguay, in a joint bid.
In December, the president of the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA), Aleksander Ceferin, said that he is not “in favor of cross-confederation bids.”
“Someone should say once to the politicians it’s not up to them to speak if they will be hosts of the Euros or the World Cup or not,” said the UEFA president.
