Now, Morocco is competing against the Americans to co-host the 48-team tournament.

Morocco's World Cup Bid is spreading its influence across the African continent.

Morocco's bid committee said in a statement that the five-man task force will visit several cities between April 17 and 19 as well as stadiums, training camps and fan fest sites, together with other venues related to the organisation of the competition.

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. South Africa hosted the tournament in 2010, beating Morocco and Egypt in a vote.

The country was second to the United States for 1994, behind France for 1998 and just lost out to South Africa for the 2010 finals, the only time the event has been held in Africa.

South African soccer leader Danny Jordaan has promised Morocco "unqualified support" to host the 2026 World Cup in a contest against a combined North American bid. That this why they have reached out to Dr Jordaan who was an important member of South Africa's World Cup bid delegation as well as the Local Organising Committee.

The North African nation is set to send members of its 2026 World Cup bid delegation to South Africa in order to engage with the SAFA President on measures of how to further strengthen their bid to host the global spectacle.

FIFA has 21-1 manhood associations who all hold a vote although FAs can not vote worldcup hosting should they have been part of a bidding or even should they truly are suspended at the time from FIFA.
