Spain to Team up with Morocco & Portugal in 2030 World Cup Bid
Sanchez made the announcement at a press conference following a meeting with King Mohammed VI and head of the Moroccan government Saad Eddine El Othmani.
The Moroccan news agency quoted the Prime Minister as highlighting the importance of the World Cup taking place on two continents.
The idea of a joint African and European bid was raised in the Moroccan press after talks between the football associations of Morocco, Spain and Portugal.
Previously, North African media spoke of a joint Maghreb bid bringing together Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia.
This will be Morocco’s sixth bid to host the World Cup. It lost the fifth bid for the 2026 edition to the North American trio, Canada, Mexico and USA.
