The presidents of the football federations of Morocco, Portugal, and Spain convened in Lisbon on Wednesday morning to advance their joint bid preparations for the 2030 World Cup.
This summit gathered Fernando Gomes (Portuguese Football Federation/FPF), Fouzi Lekjaa (Royal Moroccan Football Federation/FRMF), and Pedro Rocha (Royal Spanish Football Federation/FREF) to continue the preparations for this unified intercontinental bid, which aspires to become the best ever for a World Cup, stated an FRMF press release.
While this marked the second meeting of the three federation presidents, it was the first since FIFA’s announcement regarding the 2030 World Cup. During the meeting held at the FPF headquarters in Cidade do Futebol, it was decided to present the letter of intent to host the World Cup on October 28, thus fulfilling one of the requirements of the bidding process.
According to the FRMF, this step will be the first formal action towards the joint bid and will underscore the commitment of Morocco, Portugal, and Spain to successfully organizing the World Cup.
This significant event will be held in Rabat, followed by a press conference featuring the presidents of the three federations, as stated by the FRMF.
Simultaneously, the 2030 World Cup bid committee continued its efforts, holding another meeting in Madrid on Wednesday to oversee the project.
