Morocco is promising to build seven new stadiums as it prepares its bid to host the 2026 World Cup, according to local media reports. 

Morocco plans to build up to six stadiums with 45,000 seat capacity as well as a 100,000-seat stadium in the country's largest city of Casablanca. The construction of the new stadiums is expected to cost between $800 million and $1 billion (USD).

The team tasked with the Morocco 2026 proposal are required to submit their book, containing all plans for stadiums, infrastructure, and transport by March 16.

To date, this is Morocco's fifth bid to host the World Cup, after their unsuccessful bids for the 1994, 1998, 2006 and 2010 tournaments.
