The North African country has been chosen by FIFA to host the 2023 Club World Cup.
The competition that confers the “best team in the world” award will be held in Morocco, as confirmed by the president of the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) Gianni Infantino.
The tournament will take place from February 1 to 11, 2023, Infantino told reporters at a press conference in Doha, as it returns to Morocco for the third time.
Morocco hosted the Club World Cup in 2013 and again in 2014, while the most recent edition was held in the United Arab Emirates in February, with Chelsea lifting the trophy.
The competition is set to continue in its existing format for now, featuring the champions of the six continental federations along with the top team from the host nation.
Real Madrid, who won the 2014 Club World Cup in Morocco, will represent Europe after winning last season’s UEFA Champions League.
Flamengo of Brazil, Al Hilal of Saudi Arabia, Wydad Casablanca of Morocco, Seattle Sounders from the United States and New Zealand’s Auckland City are the other current continental champions.
