The country has previously bid four times to host, in 1994, 1998, 2006, and 2010.

“This candidacy is different from the precious ones,” commented Mr Elalamy.

“Morocco has gone forward and fulfilled many commitments taken in the previous candidacy, including the building of new stadiums, hotels, infrastructure and transport network.”

Elalamy noted that since prior bids, the nation has strengthened in significant sectors, such as infrastructure, geographical location, adequate time zone, population, and the continent’s passion for the sport.
