Morocco has joined Spain and Portugal in their bid to host the 2030 World Cup.
Ukraine was originally part of the bid but now appears to have been replaced.
Morocco declared it would bid for the 2030 World Cup in July 2018, after five previous unsuccessful attempts to host the tournament — 1994, 1998, 2006, 2010, and 2026. If successful in 2030, it would be the first country to host World Cup matches in North Africa.
Bid looks attractive given the distance between Morocco and Spain, which is just about 1331.4 km.
The Spain-Morocco-Portugal 2030 World Cup bid faces stiff competition from the quartet of Argentina,-Chile-Paraguay-Uruguay. There is also the expected Saudi Arabia-Greece-Egypt bid.
The winner of the bid will be announced in 2024.
