FIFA World Cup task force arrives to inspect 2026 candidate Morocco

(Ah Fat Talk Ball) - Morocco's bid to host the 2026 World Cup went under the microscope on Monday as a task force from global soccer body FIFA arrived for an inspection visit to assess the country's ability to host the tournament.

Morocco is the only rival to a joint United States, Canada, Mexico bid to stage the event with the FIFA Congress due to choose the hosts in Moscow on June 13.

Morocco's bid committee said in a statement that the five-man task force will visit several cities between April 17-19 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 use a point-scoring system to evaluate the two candidates and a bid which does not meet a minimum score on a number of different points will be disqualified before the final vote in Russia.

The country was second to the U.S. 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.
