Spanish Minister Sees Joint World Cup Bid with Morocco, Portugal ‘Exciting’, ‘Close to Our Hearts’

Spain’s joint 2030 World Cup bid with Morocco and Portugal is “an exciting project that is close to our hearts,” said Spanish Presidency Minister Félix Bolaños García.

“We are working on an exciting project that is also close to our hearts, namely the organization of the World Cup with Portugal and Morocco,” Bolanos said in an interview with Spanish sports daily Marca, published on Friday.

According to the Spanish official, the three neighbors are working tirelessly to make this project a success. “We are working hard because it is high time […] to organize a great international competition,” said the Spanish minister in charge of relations with both houses of parliament.

HM King Mohammed VI had announced Morocco’s joint bid with Spain and Portugal to host the 2030 World Cup on March 14 in Kigali, in a message on the occasion of having received the CAF President’s Outstanding Award.

This joint bid, unprecedented in the history of football, will be the crossroads between Africa and Europe, between the North and the South of the Mediterranean, and between the African, Arab and Euro-Mediterranean worlds, the Sovereign said.

The Sovereign also specified that this bid will be the one that brings together the best of both sides, and the demonstration of an alliance of genius, creativity, experience and resources.
