Marrakesh will host from the 15th to the 19th of January a meeting set to examine the number of teams that would participate to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, reports the Spanish sports online newspaper.
During the same meeting, FIFA will examine the feasibility of a joint bid, bringing Morocco, Spain and Portugal together for the 2030 World Cup.
FIFA President Gianni Infantino is expected to convince the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) President Aleksander Ceferin into changing his mind about the Morocco joint bid.
For the record, speaking after a meeting of the UEFA executive committee held Monday, the European soccer’s leadership president Ceferin said that he would not accept a world cup bid that involves two different continents. «I’m not in favor of cross-confederation bids», he firmly announced.
