Gallery: The Stadiums Of Morocco's 2026 World Cup Bid Revealed

Morocco presented its bid book to FIFA last week Friday in an attempt to become the second African nation to host the World Cup. Here are the designs of the 14 stadiums earmarked by the North African nation for the tournament in 2026.

Click through the gallery above to see the stunning stadiums that could be built for the 2026 FIFA World Cup in Morocco.

Morocco will go up against the joint bid from the United States, Canada and Mexico, with the deciding vote taking place on 13 June in Moscow, Russia.

The 2026 World Cup will be the first where the 211 member associations will have one vote each – excluding the four bidding members – to select the World Cup hosts instead of only the FIFA executive voting, as was common procedure up until now.

It will also be the first World Cup that will feature 48 countries, and Morocco will hope to finally win the hosting rights after failing with bids on four previous occasions.

However, according to Al Jazeera, a five-member FIFA task force, dominated by European officials, will assess each bidding country before the vote, and could potentially disqualify any of the bidders.

Morocco have included 14 stadiums in 12 cities into their World Cup bid, and you can find their suggested designs in the gallery above.

Well, that's an imaginational world. A few years back we saw similarity pics from Qatar, like stadiums build in the sea... Wow! In real world there is nothing like that. We will all drown(onology). Lol
