Morocco to Be “Home” for Many African WC 2026 Qualifiers
Many African national teams have chosen Morocco as the venue to host their World Cup 2026 qualifiers. These highly anticipated matches are scheduled to take place this month.
This monumental decision demonstrates the Royal Moroccan Football Federation’s (FRMF) collaborative approach with other African football federations. The resulting partnership has enabled these countries to compete for their qualifying matches on Moroccan land, giving the competitive path to the World Cup a distinctive touch.
The qualifiers for the World Cup in the African Zone will be spread over two years. They will start on November 13, 2023 and end in November 2025, according to the schedule set by world soccer’s body, the International Federation of Association Football (FIFA).
Teams are divided into nine groups for the FIFA World Cup, with winners earning automatic qualification, paving the way for global football glory.
