The task force will make use of a system to evaluate the two candidates and also a bidding that does not satisfy with a minimum score onto lots of points that are distinct will probably probably be redeemed until the vote in Russian Federation.

Morocco&rsquo bidding plays greatly on the country's enthusiasm for soccer and its own fan civilization, because of its proximity to both Europe, its compact size along with environment.

Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Nasser Bourita announced, Sunday, that the 29th Arab Summit, held in the Saudi city of Dhahran, unanimously affirmed its support for Morocco's bid to host the 2026 FIFA World Cup.

So far, Morocco has secured the backing of the bulk of the members of the African football federation, France, Luxembourg, Belgium, Russia, Serbia and after the support of Arab States, Muslim countries are also expected to vote for Morocco.

Quoted by SAFA, Bell said "when South Africa talks on the continent, the rest of the continent listens hence it is vital for South Africa to support Morocco".
