Former FIFA president Sepp Blatter is throwing his weight behind Morocco's bid to host the 2026 World Cup.
The ousted FIFA boss said in a tweet he sent that Morocco "would be the logical host" over the joint North American bid from the United States, Mexico and Canada.
Morocco would need to spend almost $16 billion US to prepare to host the 2026 World Cup, with every proposed stadium and training ground built from scratch or renovated, the bid said Saturday.
With less than three months to go until the FIFA vote, the north African nation presented the first significant details of its proposal to take on the joint bid from the United States, Canada and Mexico.
For $3 billion, Morocco said it can build nine stadiums, refurbish five others and build or renovate 130 training grounds. That is part of the $12.6 billion in public investment that also requires hospital services being upgraded in 20 cities and transport networks improved for the World Cup after the jump from 32 to 48 participating nations.
The bid said another $3.2 billion of private investment is required to build hotels containing around 30,000 rooms.
Nine new stadiums are planned, including a 93,000-capacity home for the national team in Casablanca that would stage the opening game and final in 2026. Stadiums would also be built in Oujda (45,600) and Tetouan (45,600), organizers said. New arenas to fit around 46,000 fans are planned in Casablanca, Marrakech, El Jadida, Meknes, Nador and Ouarzazate with the intention of downsizing them to unspecified capacities after the World Cup. The five existing stadiums that need upgrading are in Marrakech (95,565), Agadir (46,048), Fez (46,092), Rabat (46,500) and Tangier (65,000).
The North American bid included 23 cities , including 17 in the United States, in documents submitted to FIFA.
Although the U.S. has a substantial stock of existing stadiums, the bid's plans were rocked last week by three cities dropping out citing burdensome financial demands by FIFA.
