The Siya group can affirm that a portion of the individuals from Morocco’s 2026 World Cup offer panel have touched base at the South African Football Association (SAFA) home office.
Members of the Moroccan 2026 World Cup bid committee include retired Senegalese footballer, El Hadji Diouf who was part of the squad that made it to the quarter-finals of the 2002 FIFA World Cup played in Korea Japan. Other members include Joseph Antoine Bell, a former Cameroonian international football goalkeeper.
The crew reported earlier that Morocco was planning to send a delegation to engage with SAFA President Danny Jordaan to seek South Africa’s endorsement on the bid of the 2026 World Cup.
Morocco hope to emulate South Africa’s success in being the second African nation to successfully bid and hopefully host a World Cup event.
Morocco are currently up against the joint bid of United States, Canada and Mexico.
