FIFA 2030 World Cup: Spain-Portugal-Morocco Joint Bid “Solid & Ambitious”
Acting Spanish PM Pedro Sanchez has said his country is working with Portugal and Morocco on a “solid and ambitious” bid for hosting the 2030 World Cup.
In a tweet posted Tuesday following his meeting in New York with FIFA President Gianni Infantino, he said :“We are working with a clear idea in mind: football is a sport with a global reach carrying positive social values.”
His comment comes few days after Heads of the football federations of Morocco, Spain and Portugal convened their first coordination meeting in Las Rozas, Spain.
In March, King Mohammed VI announced Morocco’s decision to join the Iberian candidacy in a letter read out by the country’s minister of sport Chakib Benmoussa in Kigali at CAF Awards ceremony.
Spain-Portugal-Morocco bid will “bring together Africa and Europe, the northern and southern Mediterranean, and the African, Arab and Euro-Mediterranean worlds,” said the Monarch.
“It will also bring out the best in all of us – in effect a combination of genius, creativity, experience and means,” underlined the Royal letter.
